Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival in Cary, NC

Lazy Daze Festival Logo Cary NCLast Saturday, August 23 was the 38th Annual Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival which has become a signature event for families across the Triangle, welcoming over 50,000 people into historic downtown Cary every year. The Town of Cary hosts the annual event and admission is always free, including shuttles and parking!

Experience the Cary Culture

Lazy Daze Festival is the perfect way to experience what we like to call the “Cary Culture”. This community event still maintains it’s small-town feel while showcasing exceptional artists from across the nation. It’s a fun day for the entire family and proceeds go right back into the community, supporting local arts activities and Town of Cary initiatives.

Take a break from shopping to enjoy the delicious concessions and fun entertainment planned throughout the day. Each end of the festival has a performance stage featuring regional talent and entertainers, including local dance groups, beach music, bluegrass, classic rock cover bands and more.

For families bringing children, Kid’s World is an interactive area of the festival where children of all ages can put their creativity to work with make-and-take crafts!

One of the highlights for children at this year’s Lazy Daze festival was the snow blower. Children squealed in excitement every 20 minutes when the machine would pump fresh snow into the 90-degree weather. The snow blower was a donation-based charity fundraiser for Christmas County Fair, an event that will be held December 12-14 at the NC State Fairgrounds. Proceeds from the Christmas County fair will provide holiday gifts for over 2,000 neglected, abused, or impoverished children. David Turner, owner of Snow My Yard, volunteered his time and equipment for the good cause.
