Get a bite to eat from Southern Harvest Mobile Kitchen and watch the movie, “Night at the Museum,” under the stars at The Honeysuckle’s inaugural four-day Fall Festival. Bring your family, friends and pets for activities starting at 5 p.m., and look out for more autumnal activities at this weekend-long event.
View the work of local potters, glass blowers, sculptors and more as they open their studios for the Orange County Artists Guild’s 2019 Studio Tour. Visit working artist studios, ask questions and shop for one-of-a-kind art at various studios across the county.
Join author Scott Huler for a reading and discussion of his book, “A Delicious Country,” at Rediscovering the Carolinas on the Route of John Lawson’s 1700 Expedition.
