Centerfest: Durham Rotary Club Members in Action

Since 1974, the Durham Arts Council has brought the Durham community together with CenterFest. As Durham’s signature arts festival, CenterFest showcases juried visual artists from near and far, and fills multiple stages with music, dance, and more from local performers. Serious art shoppers are dazzled by world-class ceramics, paintings, jewelry, fiber art, woodwork, and everything in between – much of it from Durham and Triangle-based creators. Singers, dance troupes, choirs, bands, jugglers, magicians, and performers of every stripe provide continuous entertainment throughout the weekend. Kids have a blast at the Creative Kids Zone, food vendors keep guests fueled for fun, and Durham’s inspiring nonprofit and government services sector are on hand connecting with the community they serve. It all takes place in the heart of Durham’s historic downtown, a hub of local businesses and foodie culture that elevates the visitor experience! (excerpt from Durham Arts Council website)

Durham Rotary Club proudly volunteers at this event each year in an effort to assist the Durham Arts Council and to raise awareness of Rotary. We were saddened last year when the event was cancelled due to an impending hurricane. Several Rotary volunteers were out this year manning the gates, selling soft drinks, sharing the story of Rotary, and mingling with the residents of Durham. We love our city!
