After four years of fundraising, the grand opening of the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center will be on Sept. 18 in conjunction with the annual Harvest Festival in downtown Yadkinville. The center will provide much-needed space for Yadkin County’s art community and students. It will also be a hub of economic activity for the community.
The center will house a gallery, classrooms, a café, a bay of working artist studios, and a courtyard plaza with fountains and mosaics. During phase II of the project, an additional $800,000 is being raised for the development of a 192-seat theater.
In conjunction with the grand opening is the Harvest Festival from 9 am until 4:30 pm. The festival will be a great way to celebrate the harvest season with vendors, artisans and craftsmen, farmers market, quilt exhibits, blue ribbon food competitions, and music.
