Now in its 44th year, CenterFest Arts Festival is the longest running outdoor juried arts festival in North Carolina. Located in Durham’s lively Downtown District, the event is a favorite among visual artists, performing artists and visitors. CenterFest 2016 and 2015 were ranked in the top hundred festivals for Fine Arts according to Sunshine Artist’s 200 Best list. CenterFest is particularly lauded by exhibitors for its artist services amenities, including complimentary breakfast, lunch delivered to artist tents, attentive staff, abundant volunteers, and easy load-in/load-out.
Durham’s recent Creative Vitality Index score indicates Durham has grown to be a top creative community in the United States. CenterFest 2018 will position the festival as a national caliber signature event for Durham. All aspects of the festival, including culinary arts components drawn from Durham’s acclaimed “foodie” culture, exciting entertainment and historic districts, and a cutting edge creative community, will highlight the high quality of the visual artists and the sophistication of the creative class demographic.
