Nightlight Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair

Via e-mail from Downtown Partnership:

Artists of all mediums are encouraged to share their creative expression and art for all to see! It's recommended that most arts and crafts be priced below $100 to make it accessible for folks to purchase. Some accepted submissions range from baked goods, collages, stuffed animals, pottery, screen printed posters and more!

There is a small fee for $35 per table which will help support future events at the Nightlight! Please submit a brief description of your work, any photos and/or links to your website by December 7th. Please direct all submissions/ questions to Alexis at or 919.923.7910.

Haw River Festival

Festival Details and Directions:

Come enjoy a Celebration of the Haw River with music, art, puppets, environmental displays and activities. You can go down to Bynum Beach and try some river monitoring and kids can take a short guided canoe ride on the river. Kids can also paint their very own critter cut-out made by Bynum’s own Clyde Jones. A fabulous Old Town canoe will be raffled and there’s a silent art auction that includes works by Clyde Jones. There’s the ‘river of chalk” art project happening on the bridge, and much to learn about the river, Jordan Lake and other environmental issues in our watershed. The great cooks at the Ruritan Club will have tasty food for sale all day.

Proceeds from the Haw River Festival help fund our work throughout the year to protect the Haw River and Jordan Lake. We are requesting a $5 donation for adults and $3 for kids under 14 years old (babies are free).

Bynum is located on the Haw River off of US 15-501, between Pittsboro and Chapel Hill.

From Chapel Hill (and points north), go south on 15-501 for about 12 miles and turn left onto Bynum Rd. (just after Allen and Son BBQ). Stay on Bynum Rd and follow signs to parking and the Festival site.

From Pittsboro (and points south), take 15 –501 north about 4 miles from Pittsboro and turn right onto Bynum Rd, (before crossing the Haw River on 15-501) and follow to dead end at river. Park on Bynum Beach Rd. and walk across the Bynum Bridge to the festival site.
