No upcoming events



The Artist and Crafter's Market is a featured event of our "Art after Dark" art walk in Fuquay-Varina, including our special editions of Spring for the Arts and Fall for the Arts in April and September. The market takes place on the second Friday of every month from April - September and in December for a special holiday edition. We offer this market as a way for local artists to share their work with the community, and for visitors to have the opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the work of local artists.


For those who are not Arts Council members, there is typically a $10 fee due at the time of registration for each market that you participate in. For Arts Council members, registration is FREE. A higher registration fee for both Members and the Public is charged for special editions including Spring for the Arts, Fall for the Arts, and Art Extravaganza. ‚Ä®Members also may register one week before non-members (see below). Registration fees are non-refundable unless the market is cancelled. 


The market is located outdoors from April - September in downtown Fuqua. There is also a special Holiday Edition of our Artist and Crafter's market indoors during "Art after Dark" in December (location to be determined). 


  • You must register ahead of time to participate.
  • Please bring your own tables, chairs, tents, lighting, or any other materials necessary for your display. 
  • You must be present to sell your work.
  • All merchandise being sold must be original artwork and crafts.
  • Individual spaces will be limited to 10x10
  • You must have a NC Sales and Use Tax Number* or have completed the application. Paperwork reflecting such is required at the event. 

When to Register

A separate registration is required for each month. For Fuquay-Varina Arts Council members, registration typically begins 45 days prior to the event.

Registration closes 72 hours before the event, or once the market fills, whichever comes first.

Registration for special editions may begin earlier. Visit us here for more details as these events get nearer.

*NC Sales Tax Number

The State of North Carolina now requires artists and crafters who sell their work at festivals, fairs,  and artist markets to register for a sales and use tax number, to have their registration certificate available for presentation at the event, and to pay NC Sales Tax on the items they sell.  

For those who don't have such a number, don't be intimidated.  You can go to the NCDOR website for information and registration. The process is free, simple, and can be done entirely online at their registration page.  If you were not able to enter your tax id number at the time of registration, please email your number to us once you receive it.
