The 42nd Annual Railroad Days Festival will incorporate an Artists Village at the North End of Raiford Street during the festival on October 7th from 9a-5p. Artists and Crafters will create their wares in the street using the medium of their craft and sell the items they create. Festival Goers will have the chance to see first hand what it takes to create beautiful art and objects and they can ask the artist questions and get to them. This is exciting to be able to give the community a sense of pride about the artists and knowing that they purchased an item that did not come from another factory in a foreign country, but from right here in Johnston County by someone they know and watched make the item.
Statewide Arts Celebration Events
In all corners of our state, North Carolinians engage in a wide variety of arts experiences – from performances in big concert halls to artist residencies in schools. During our anniversary season, we are shining a spotlight on these creative moments. Events and programs in all 100 counties have been dedicated to the North Carolina Arts Council’s 50th. This is our Statewide Arts Celebration.
