Celebrate Fuquay Varina Festival

On the weekend of Thursday, October 6 through Saturday, October 8, just down the street from your new home at South Lakes, the community will join together in celebration of your new home town, with live entertainment, great food and beverage, art, kids fun, and much more as part of the Celebrate Fuquay Varina Festival.

The kick off to the Celebrate Fuquay Varina Festival will be on October 6 in the Varina Business District with the world famous Landshark Band taking the stage, and once the hit the opening notes, the live entertainment pretty much continues throughout the weekend.

In addition to all of this incredible live talent, you must not forget to bring your appetite to the Celebrate Fuquay Varina Festival, as the Food Court will feature just about anything you could imagine from some of the top local food vendors around. There will be plenty of activities and rides for the kids in the “Kids Zone” to partake in throughout the Celebrate Fuquay Varina Festival also, and it just wouldn’t be a celebration of Fuquay without a taste of our local breweries and their famous craft beers.
