Held this coming Saturday, August 11th, from 3:00pm – 9:00pm, ARTspo’s mission is to inspire creative growth and the event features numerous activities geared particularly toward young minds. From arts and crafts stations to games to gallery exhibits and live performances, the event is a creative arts festival open to all ages. Half of the proceeds from the entry fee will go to the Durham Youth Alliance, a non-profit focused on inspiring and empowering youth and families by fostering hope through enrichment services. Sure to be an engaging and interactive event, ARTspo will be held in the beautiful Raleigh Rose Garden and Amphitheatre adjacent to Raleigh Little Theatre.
Every Saturday the parking lot at Rebus Works fills with fresh local produce, scrumptious baked goods, and handcrafted items for the weekly Saturday Market event.
