Fresh Fruit Festival
Music, art, dance, dialogue, education, social causes, business, fashion, empowerment, drama, and entertainment all integrated into one social stream of consciousness that collectively called THE CULTURE. One wristband covers the entire weekend. If you enjoy programming like SXSW, The Essence Festival, Tiny Desk, Ted Talks, comedy shows, and artist slams tagged with independently owned food trucks, you will love the Fresh Fruit Festival. What makes it even sweeter is that the artists, speakers, designers, and musicians, are local or have ties to the community. Homegrown is always sweeter. Support local.
Set to occur on the 3rd weekends pre and post Third Friday Durham, The Festivals of ART, Thought, and Culture (ATC Festivals) and The FRUIT have curated three day immersive cultural experiences that will educate, inspire, entertain, and challenge you. The theme of the Festivals and the lineup change monthly. The artwork in the gallery of The FRUIT rotates in accordance with the Festivals.
