Celebrating 40 years of Artsplosure -- it’s how Raleigh celebrates the arts in spring! The festival will be making a splash with a full weekend of art and music in heart of Downtown on Fayetteville Street! Take a stroll through the color and creativity of over 170 artists at the art market, experience the surreal wonder of Australian artist Amanda Parer’s What’s That sculpture, and listen to live music including The Suffers, Alejandro Escovedo, and more! Bring the kids for interactive art and crafts at Kidsplosure on Fayetteville Street, too! Let’s take over downtown with music and art!
