Because it seems people are always wondering what there is to do in this area, I thought i would start a thread (maybe weekly?) on things to do this weekend. I think there is plenty to do here for all interests. Post here what you will be up to this weekend, or anything you just know about!

First, there are two HUGE events in Raleigh and Durham. One of the country's largest BUGFEST takes place in Raleigh at the NC Museum of Life and Science: BugFest • North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences This event has expanded over the years and now extends for blocks. I see how they are starting an adult/evening version of the event this year.

In Durham is Centerfest. Arguably, this is the best arts festival in the area, with artists, music, food. Check it out.

What else is going on? Big or small?

I've been to Centerfest a few times. It is good, but IMO Artsplosure in Raleigh in the Spring is the best.

But isn't this weekend the 14,15,16th?

AHHHHH!! I have a headache today and should not be typing! Yes, it is the 14/15th. I will fix that!

DW, that is why I said "arguably". I like Artsplosure, but have friends that swear that Centerfest is better.....to each his own!

And I forgot, it is the weekend of the Greek Festival at the Fairgrounds!
Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church
Great food and dance/music. Get there early to avoid the lines...although the lines move fast!

I *love the idea of a thread like this weekly!! I am always sitting around trying to find new ideas for weekend fun!

This weekend we are going to the NC Museum of Art, with a walk through the nature trails after we check out the museum. That will be folllowed by a treat at Cold Stone.

Moderator cut: FYI
I have no problem in changing the dates on this thread to the upcoming weekend.
However you might want to start a new one for each month due to you might hate have to sift thru all the halloween events to find christmas events.
I will try to change dates on Monday's but If I forget DM me or other moderator to do so.

SunnyKayak

btw for those who decide to take a trip to Charlotte there is a similar thread called Festival and Events in that forum. It really cool how we have city data community in the Carolinas.

Thanks Moderator!
I have no problem in starting a weekly thread (or anybody starting it). That is why I put in the date, albiet the wrong one!

Priorityonecb - you might want to be aware of this from NCMA's website:
September Stroll
Friday, September 14, or Saturday, September 29
Strech your legs and discover art in nature. Join Museum Park Manager Tia Herring for a delightful walk in the Park., boxed lunch, and discussion in the newly constructed outdoor classroom. Comfortable shoes are encouraged. Meet at the information desk at 10:50 a.m. Rain or shine.

Also, for those of you in Wake Forest, I think it is WF's downtown art walk this Friday too.

BTW, the Greek festival is the 22nd-23rd, not the 14th-15th.
