FRANKLIN FAIR FUNDRAISING EVENT

 Saturday, May 22nd from 10 AM - 5 PM   

2380 Long Mill Rd,

Youngsville, NC 27596

 

We are hosting our first annual community fundraising event! Think flea market meets art fair meets food truck rodeo! Vendors, artists, and small businesses can rent a space from us to set up and sell their stuff. All of the rental proceeds will go toward the Arts Council to provide even more awesome programming to the community. We will have food trucks, arts and crafts for kids, games, and more! Take some time to get out of the house and explore the goods and services our county has to offer!

If you would like to rent space(s) to display your art, advertise your business, or sell your products, click the link to the left to register. Spaces are $25 for individuals and artists who are members of the council, or $40 for businesses or non-member artists.

We are also looking for volunteers! High school age and up, if you have some time to give, we need help preparing for the event. Tasks range from creating social media posts, talking to local businesses to gain sponsors, and working the event the day of. You even get a free t-shirt! Click the button to the left!
