39th Annual Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival

Saturday, Aug 22, 2015, 9:30 am
Main Stage - Town Hall Campus,
Cary, NC

Late August – the dog days of summer – lazy days – the perfect time for the 39th Annual Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival – a day filled with exhibits and shopping and entertainment of all varieties. And what better way to start the festival than with the Cary Town Band on the Wilkinson Avenue stage on the Town Hall Campus in Cary – in the morning before the heat of the day. (Note the relocation of this year's activities due to the ongoing reconstruction of South Academy Street.)  As you start enjoying all the activities, stop by to hear rousing marches, circus melodies, old-timey rags, and a waltz or two.  It will have you tapping your toes and dancing off to see all there is to see at this year’s Lazy Daze Festival.  We’ll see you there.

Gems From Drawer 1

Friday, Sep 11, 2015, 7:30 PM
Sertoma Amphitheatre, Bond Park

The band stores its music sequentially in about 16 filing cabinet drawers. Most recent concerts have featured music from the later drawers to be filled. But it’s time to go back, find the real musical gems from the band’s early years, and feature the music from Drawer 1. There are Sousa marches, wedding dances, Schubert ballet music, von Suppé Overtures, circus music from King and others, polkas, and much more. You’ll be surprised and entertained hearing what the band played 27 years ago. Come join with us as we rediscover the Gems From Drawer 1.
