Nash Arts Hosts Talented Artists

The Nash County Arts Council exists to provide artist and audience opportunities and quality arts experiences, to keep our community engaged in the arts, and to reach all of our community's demographics through diverse programming. As they enter the second half of their programming year, they have an exciting lineup of 13 upcoming events.

There will be a variety of musical talents and performances, so there is sure to be something of interest for everyone.

One of the year’s biggest events, and the only event available to the public for free, is the Blooming Festival. The Blooming Festival Kick-Off this year will feature Mac Arnold & Plate Full of Blues. Mac plays a gas can guitar and has a talented band that plays along with him. The Blooming Festival Kick-Off is held annually during Mother’s Day weekend, and it is a great event for all ages.

Another highly anticipated show is the upcoming performance of the local talent, The Dogwoods. The Dogwoods have grown in popularity in the area over the last year or so, and their show on February 11 will be the first time they’ve played on the stage at the Nash County Arts Council.

In addition to the concert series, they have an annual production of A Christmas Carol, which allows local residents and youth an opportunity to get involved. They also help develop the arts in our area by redistributing grants to other local non-profits involved in the arts like the Grassroots Arts Program.

As they plan ahead for the 2023-2024 year, Nash Arts will focus on building repairs in collaboration with Nash County Government. They also plan to launch a new website next month, so be sure to check that out!
