A New Spring Arts Festival at Northgate!
Saturday, June 4, 2011
10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
The new outdoor Plaza at Northgate Mall is the perfect place for a spring art show. "Arts on the Plaza" will feature fine art and craft artists, musical entertainment, spacious walkways for browsing, family activities and great food!
Northgate Mall, a recently renovated Durham shopping landmark, and the Durham Arts Council are joining forces to combine all of the excitement of an outdoor craft show with the convenience and amenities for which Northgate is famous. Proceeds benefit the Durham Arts Council Clay Studio at Northgate.
