The 41st Annual Centerfest Arts Festival on September 19 – 20 was a huge success in its fourth year back in the heart of Downtown Durham. We had perfect festival weather and record attendance! A total of 34,765 people enjoyed great art and lively performances in downtown Durham throughout the 2-day weekend! (last year was 26,377).
Thank You to the Rotary Club of Durham for playing a BIG role in creating a wonderful 2015 CenterFest Arts Festival! On behalf of the Durham Arts Council Board and Staff, we are truly grateful to the 41 Durham Rotarians and three spouses plus 8 members from other Durham Rotary Clubs who covered really important cash positions at the festival Gates and Coke Booths. Thank you for your enthusiasm, dedication and friendly welcome to all who came to CenterFest!
The festival this year showcased 144 visual artists from 16 states, 70 performing artists and groups on six stages, over 40 community nonprofit, civic and government groups, great festival food, a Beer Garden with entertainment into Saturday evening, a fun Kids Zone, and many new festival activities.
