The Sanford Arts and Vine Festival is a thrill for the senses; a celebration of creativity and ability, of tradition and community.

Drawing artists from all over the region, the Arts and Vine Festival adds to its predecessor’s focus on North Carolina pottery by including talented artists of other mediums, music and a larger selection of state wineries and culinary artists.

The three-day festival is held the first weekend of May at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center in beautiful Sanford, N.C. Home of the former Sanford Pottery Festival, the city has drawn thousands of art lovers and buyers each year, and it is our hope to build upon that success to make Arts and Vine a “must see” for those who appreciate North Carolina’s talented artists.

Admission: $5 entry for art show, $10 entry for wine tent
