SPARKcon starts today!!

SEP 16, 2011

Now that you've had a minute to catch your breath, it's SPARKcon time!  Wondering where to go, what to do, and when to go there?  NewRaleigh has put together a great summary of the festivals events!


"SPARKcon is one of the most unique things Raleigh has to offer.  Imagine every confrence, festival, and arts expo combined and run non-profit by volunteers, and you get SPARKcon.  The result, is a true non-commercial experience with Raleigh's creative community.  SPARKcon was founded six years ago by Beth and Aly Kahlifa of designbox and Gamila Design. Over the years more and more of the community has gotten behind supporting it.  Now the Visual Art Exchange coordinates SPARKcon and there are over 15 different 'sparks' or festival categories.  For most SPARKcon is difficult to describe, but if you think of it as the best of what our community has to offer, across disciplines, then it is easy to explain the appeal.

There are so many events and you should plan on spending the weekend on Fayetteville street bouncing from event to event.  To see everything going on check out the full schedule and see our highlights below..."
