Events Fuquay-Varina knows how to have a good time and offers a number of events throughout the year that include a celebration of the arts. Experience the thrill of the award winning En Plein Air Paint-off, a 2-day art competition ending with an auction of original works. See past winners’ masterpieces displayed on buildings throughout the historic downtown. Bengals on Parade is a nod to our hometown high school mascot, as interpreted by local artists. (include map) Celebrate Fuquay-Varina (early October) celebrates the joys of small town NC, and includes multiple music stages, an artists’ village, and hands on art activities for kids and adults alike. The Artists’ Village is just one of many components that round out the WRAL Freedom Balloon Festival, held over Memorial Weekend.
