Join APS at the Festival for the Eno – Wednesday, July 4, and Saturday, July 7 – 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. each day. Ticket Prices vary so check their website!
The Festival the Eno has it’s beginnings in the NC Folklife Festival held at Durham’s newly created West Point Park in 1976 as the state’s official bicentennial celebration and featured traditional crafts, music, dance and trades demonstrations. The Festival’s for the Eno is still dedicated to the preservation and presentation of our rich and varied cultures and still offers plenty of hands on learning opportunities. Attendees can “throw” a pot on a clay wheel, watch a water powered grist mill grinding corn, or participate in urban farming, kayaking, weaving, and clean energy demonstrations, or participate in an old time or ukulele “jam” at the High Strung workshop stage.
That is, when they are not listening or dancing to the 60+ hours of music on 5 stages, browsing the booths of 80 plus crafts artists, drinking cold beers and other drinks, or diving into the delicious offerings of more than 20 food trucks and vendors.
