Find out how to get involved in YOUR Community! Community-based cultural groups will come together to inform festival attendees of the great work they do all year round to support the arts in Cary. Located beside the new Cary Arts Center, these groups will distribute literature and information about their organization, sell raffle tickets or fundraising items other than crafts, artwork or food. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about Cary’s non-profit arts organizations and the services they provide. Stop by and show them your support!
