Spring into Arts Fest Coming May 13

May 03, 2017 09:54AM ● Published by Jason Huddle

Concord - The 2017 Spring into Arts Festival will take place in Downtown Concord on Saturday, May 13, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The festival stretches along three blocks of Union Street, from in front of the Concord Library (27 Union Street, North) to the intersection of Union Street and Corban Avenue. 

The center-piece of the festival is a juried art show, with more than twenty artists participating. Each artist has a booth where they both display and sell their work. Additional works will be available from Red Hands Coop on the artist row, as well as at the Cabarrus Art Guild (11 Union Street, South, lower level) and The Galleries at the Cabarrus Arts Council (65 Union Street, South). 

Creation Station, the festival’s children’s area, will take up the entire courthouse block along Union

Street from Means Avenue to Corban Avenue. This year’s library’s theme is Build a Better World, with the Concord Parks and Recreation Department focusing on Plant and Planet. Together, there will be a wide variety of hands-on activities for children to enjoy all day long.

The Creation Station stage will feature a full schedule of live performances featuring professional and amateur performers. At the “other end” of the festival will be the #CreativeHappensHere Stage, where local and regional musicians and dancers will provide plenty of entertainment! Ukuleles,

bluegrass and Americana jam sessions, belly dancing, ballroom dancing, and clogging will all be featured. 

Along the artist row five breweries and four wineries will have a variety of beverages available for sale. In addition, Downtown Concord’s diverse restaurants and eateries will be open to provide plenty of great food for all ages throughout the day.
