The Spring Daze Festival, which showcases the works of local artists and crafters, will return to Bond Park on April 29th, from 9am to 5pm. The event will feature over 170 North Carolina artists, live entertainment, numerous food booths, and adult beverages from local breweries.
Jenna Kostka, Festivals and Events Supervisor for Cary, expressed excitement about the return of the festival, saying, “This annual event has become a beloved tradition in our community, showcasing the incredible talents of local artists and crafters. We are excited to once again bring together families, friends, and neighbors for a day of artistic talent, music, food, and fun, while supporting the vibrant arts scene that makes our town so special.”
Min Zhong, a portrait and landscape painter from Beijing, China, will be the featured artist for this year’s festival. Zhong’s work is inspired by people and nature, and she tries to capture the essence of her subjects to convey a feeling, tell a story, or explore an idea. Zhong hopes that her work resonates with viewers, saying “Art is an essential part of my life.” You can visit her website here.
Parking at Bond Park is expected to be limited. To help alleviate traffic, the Town of Cary has made alternative transportation options available to patrons. Access to the festival is possible via the Oxxford Hunt, Black Creek, or White Oak Creek Greenways. A complimentary bike valet service will be available at the White Oak Creek Greenway festival entrance, and a free festival shuttle bus will run between the Town Hall Parking Deck and Green Hope High School every 20-30 minutes throughout the day. Patrons using rideshare services can be dropped off in a designated area within the Bond Park Community Center parking lot.
The Spring Daze Festival promises to be a celebration of creativity and community spirit, and a great opportunity to support local artists and crafters. For more information about the festival, visit the Town of Cary’s website here.
