Weekend at a Glance
Embrace the colder weather with a weekend of comfort food, Christmas crafts and celebrating our community treasures
By Allie Todd
Singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock, a former member of art-rock band The Soft Boys, takes the stage at The ArtsCenter with Django Haskins, who once fronted The Old Ceremony, for a night of rock and pop that will take you back to the early 2000s.
An all-star lineup including Andrea Reusing, Al Bowers and Spring Council will honor the longtime Crook’s Corner chef Bill Smith at Roast & Toast. Be prepared for a night of Southern food and storytelling that doubles as a fundraiser for EmPOWERment Inc.
Head over to The Barn at Lloyd’s Dairy Farm for a day (or an entire weekend) of Christmas, crafts and antiques at the annual Tarheel Antiques Festival & Christmas Craft Show. Saturday and Sunday, the barn will be turned into a festival with local vendors booths, appraisals, Christmas displays and on-site auctions. This year will benefit Meridian Community Foundation, who is planning to build a park in northern Orange County.
The Chapel Hill Historical Society will honor and celebrate the 2019 Community Treasures with a reception at 3 p.m. at the Chapel Hill Public Library. The celebration will include a proclamation from the mayors of Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough. This annual event recognizes community members “who have generously served our community with kind hearts and good deeds.”
