Take in the Art Scene

Fuquay-Varina has a growing arts scene and the vibe is generating a great deal of activity.

Visit art galleries including Ashley’s Art Gallery of Magnolia House to see a large selection of original art from artists around the world and our own backyard.

Every fall and spring, the Follow Me 2 Fuquay-Varina Concert Series features regional acts playing a variety of music in a family-friendly atmosphere at Centennial Square from 6:30-9:30 p.m.  Local artists line the street, and Aviator BreweryFainting Goat Brewery, Mason Jar Lager Company, Adam’s Vineyard and local restaurants and food trucks are onsite.

Fuquay-Varina knows how to have a good time and offers a number of events throughout the year that include a celebration of the arts. Experience the thrill of the award winning En Plein Air Paint-off, a 2-day art competition ending with an auction of original works.  See past winners’ masterpieces displayed on buildings throughout the downtown districts.

Celebrate Fuquay-Varina (early October) celebrates the charm of small town North Carolina, and includes multiple music stages, an artists’ village, and hands on art activities for kids and adults alike. 

The Artists’ and Merchants Village is just one of many components that round out the Freedom Balloon Festival, held over Memorial Weekend.

Arts Center
The Fuquay-Varina Arts Center supports the community by offering performances, classes, workshops, and exhibits for youth and adults. Currently under construction, the new Arts Center is anticipated to open its doors in Summer, 2018.
