ArtFest to feature Folkmoot performers

art festdayThe Haywood County Arts Council will once again host ArtFest (formerly called International Festival Day) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 19 in downtown Waynesville. 

Over 95 artists representing a full range of media will demonstrate and sell artwork. This festival is one of the arts council’s largest events of the year and it happens to coincide with the first weekend of Folkmoot, to give the attendees a chance to see a couple of guest performances from the international dance groups. This year, Folkmoot will bring three international dance groups to perform onstage and four more groups to be on the street. 

Children can also enjoy the Passport to the Arts section where they will get to work with professionals to create intriguing craft projects. For more information on the Haywood County Arts Council or to determine whether vendor spaces are still available, click on
