Chapel Hill’s annual arts festival, Festifall, is back this October and set to take over West Franklin Street from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. This year’s festival will feature an eclectic arts and craft market, live music, interactive performances, and free family fun. Festifall is a signature Town festival organized by Community Arts & Culture with the help of many other Town departments and organizations. Event producers are thrilled to enhance the experience this year based on feedback from the local community, partners, vendors and more.
Festifall attendees can expect to see a quality range of art including street performances, live painting, spoken word and bigger music acts. The arts and craft market will feature a more curated and focused group of artisans presenting a diverse assortment of products and price, all hailing from our region. Performances from The Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern, Playmakers Repertory Company and Poetry Fox are scheduled to pop-up along the street. The Family Fun Zone will feature a participatory graffiti art mural together with creative kid-friendly art vendors and activities. Music headliners include acoustic string trio Onyx Club Boys, singer-songwriter Skylar Gudasz, Afro-Brazilian instrumentalist Caique Vidal, and Charly Lowry of Dark Water Rising.
