Stockley Gardens Fall Arts Festival

  • Stockley Gardens Park in Ghent, Norfolk, VA (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Twice a year, on the third weekend in May and October, people flock to Stockley Gardens in Norfolk's historic Ghent neighborhood to browse through jewelry, pottery, paintings, and other works of art by over 130 artists. The park is full of strollers and dogs and tantalizing smells. Music drifts from the stage. Friends stop to chat. And throughout the weekend, there is a feeling of hope.

The money raised during these events helps pay for rent, transportation, food, furnishings, unmet medical care, and more for people with intellectual disabilities. But the events themselves benefit the entire community.

Each year, a nationally recognized artist or curator judges the artists, who compete for cash prizes. There are special exhibits and prizes for emerging student artist. Award winners are announced during the Artists' Reception, which is held Saturday evening on the Main Stage.

Saturday, October 20th, 10 to 5 and Sunday, October 21st, 12 to 5.

Wild Goose Festival

Wild Goose Festival is a 4day spirit, justice, music, and arts festival held in Hot Springs, NC. It’s a place where all kinds of people come together, not only to hear great music and incredible speakers, but also to dive into lively conversations with thought leaders, writers, dreamers, artists, visionaries, social justice activists, peace-makers…the ones you’ll find on the official program, and the ones you might meet while just getting lunch or hanging out by the river. It’s also a place where you can be a spectator, but where you can be a co-creator as well. A place where we affirm the creativity in all of us, and opportunities to make art and music, to tell stories and take in stories, can be found around every corner.

Suzanne will be vending (including some brand new items!), and doing a workshop on Friday afternoon. Buy tickets and find out more info on the website at http://wildgoosefestival.org/
