2015 Bakersville Creek Walk Arts Festival
The Bakersville Creek Walk Arts Festival will take place this year in June. From the festival facebook page:
We are happy to announce that, due to popular demand and a great deal of community & financial support, the Bakersville Creek Walk Arts Festival will be continuing in 2015!
Our one big change is that the BCWAF will no longer be held in September, but in June! After much deliberation and discussion with local civic groups, galleries, and businesses, the decision was reached to “merge” with the NC Rhododendron Festival, Bakersville’s other flagship event. The Rhododendron Festival, which will celebrate its 69th year in 2015, draws visitors from all over the region during the 3rd week in June. During that weekend, the town features the Rhododendron Festival Pageant, a car show, a 10K run, street dancing, and a (non-juried) craft show. It is our hope that adding our juried fine art show to the mix will decrease operating costs and increase attendance for both festivals.
