Transylvania County Arts Council in Brevard, NC, Presents the 30th Annual Fine Arts and Crafts Showcase
Come home to Brevard, NC's 30th Annual Fine Arts and Crafts Showcase! On July 4, from 10am-6pm, more than thirty artists and crafters from across the region will converge on Main Street in downtown Brevard to display their original, hand-crafted wares in wood, fiber, clothing, jewelry, metalwork, furniture, pottery, basketry, gourds, bonsai, photography, and more.
For the second year in a row, the Showcase will be held on West Main Street in conjunction with the Heart of Brevard's 4th of July Celebration. At last year's event thousands of people flocked to downtown Brevard for the Fine Arts and Crafts Showcase, musical performances, races, children's activities, the antique car show, food and more. At this year's event the Western North Carolina Wagon Train will pass through and there will be a climbing wall too. Then at 9:30pm there's the annual fireworks display just down the street at Brevard College to wrap up the fun at the end of the day.
"When visitors reach downtown Brevard, the Fine Arts and Crafts Showcase will be easy to find," said Transylvania County Arts Council representative Jenny Quinn. "When the Arts Council joined its Showcase with the 4th of July Celebration last year, we wanted to retain the identity of this time-honored event in some way, so amidst all the red, white and blue, our block was decorated with yellow and purple. This year we'll still be displaying those colors again but we'll be adding some red, white and blue to share in the patriotic spirit. It should prove to be quite an interesting palette."
