The Final Friday Art Crawl was established in 2006. This year-round monthly event features Cary galleries, studios, museums and shops opening their doors to show art. The Art Crawl is held on the final Friday of the month and open from 6–9 pm.
In line with its original purpose, local artists are given an opportunity to display and sell their work. This event has grown from a few attendees to 50–100 people visiting 4–6 venues and continues to attract new people to Downtown Cary. The established museums and galleries offer free admission and many shops stay open late. During any given Art Crawl, visitors can expect visual art, performances and maybe a few fireworks! Each venue offers something different and creative, a true hallmark of the Cary Arts District.
Final Friday is a perfect date night starting with a cocktail, coffee or early dinner out on the town. It can also be a leisurely browse of the art and a great late dinner or nightcap in Downtown’s unique restaurants or eateries. Families can find many options from kid-friendly gallery shows to performing art.
