Art After Hours, Historic Downtown Wake Forest

Every second Friday of the month, Historic Downtown Wake Forest comes alive with what is known as "Art After Hours". Downtown merchants are open until 9pm, with their door propped open on mild evenings welcoming you in to take a look around. Our downtown is totally unique with its boutique shops, restaurants, cafes, and art galleries. Sometimes you'll hear musicians playing on the street, in the shops or in the cafes, there is always something new at Art After Hours.

The Cotton Company features an Artists Reception and Wine Tasting during Art After Hours. Stroll through The Cotton Company Gallery to see the Artists work being featured that month, maybe get a chance to meet him/her and to take a look at The Cotton Company's resident artists' displays. Sip on the feature wine as you stroll the gallery. You can't leave The Cotton Company without strolling through the Marketplace to see over 60 boutiques, artists and crafts - you are sure to find a unique treasure for yourself, your home, or a gift.

Wake Forest Coffee Company is down the street, and you'll have to stop in to see what is brewing. Upstairs from the Coffee Company is the Twisted Vine Wine Shoppe.  Our favorite Mexican restaurant is Las Margaritas, located underneath The Lemon Tree Boutique and Cafe.  Stop in to have some dinner or hit Backfins Crabhouse for some seafood.

Our next Art After Hours is this Friday, March 11th from 6-9pm.  Come to your historic downtown and see what's going on!

I'll see you there!
