"Art after Dark" Artist and Crafter's Market
The Artist and Crafter's Market is a featured event of our "Art after Dark" art walk in Fuquay-Varina, including our special editions of Spring for the Arts and Fall for the Arts in April and September. The market takes place on the second Friday of every month from April - September and in December for a special holiday edition. We offer this market as a way for local artists to share their work with the community, and for visitors to have the opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the work of local artists.
For those who are not Arts Council members, there is a $10 fee due at the time of registration for each market that you participate in. For Arts Council members, registration is FREE. Members also may register one week before non-members (see below).
The market is located outdoors from April - September (in downtown Varina on odd months and in downtown Fuquay on even months). There is also a special Holiday Edition of our Artist and Crafter's market indoors during "Art after Dark" in December (location to be determined).
You must register ahead of time to participate.
Please bring your own tables, chairs, tents, lighting, or any other materials necessary for your display.
You must be present to sell your work.
All merchandise being sold must be original artwork and crafts.
Individual spaces will be limited to 10x10
