The Artist and Crafter's Market is a featured event of our "Art after Dark" art walk in Fuquay-Varina, including our special editions of Spring for the Arts and Fall for the Arts in April and September. The market takes place on the second Friday of every month from April - September and in December for a special holiday edition. We offer this market as a way for local artists to share their work with the community, and for visitors to have the opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the work of local artists.
For those who are not Arts Council members, there is typically a $10 fee due at the time of registration for each market that you participate in. For Arts Council members, registration is FREE. A higher registration fee for both Members and the Public is charged for special editions including Spring for the Arts, Fall for the Arts, and Art Extravaganza. Members also may register one week before non-members (see below). Registration fees are non-refundable unless the market is cancelled.
The market is located outdoors from April - September in downtown Fuqua. There is also a special Holiday Edition of our Artist and Crafter's market indoors during "Art after Dark" in December (location to be determined).
*NC Sales Tax Number
The State of North Carolina now requires artists and crafters who sell their work at festivals, fairs, and artist markets to register for a sales and use tax number, to have their registration certificate available for presentation at the event, and to pay NC Sales Tax on the items they sell.
