An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until September 23, 2023
One event on August 27, 2023 at 2:00 pm
Dozens of artists, creating in a myriad of media, are represented in this annual Come Out and Play Sculpture Show, now in its 22nd year. The event takes place on a 17-acre homestead and is a gift from hosts to guests and artists. Artists do not pay a participation fee and keep all proceeds from their sales (many of the works on display are for sale). There are some out-of-state artists, but most are local to North Carolina. Each reception is filled with fantastic art and local vendors, free food and drink from the artists and hosts, visits with the horses and pigs, and live music from the North Carolina Songwriters Co-op.
The opening reception for 2023 is Sat, Aug 26 and Sun, Aug 27, 2pm until dark. Additional receptions are hosted on the following Saturdays in September: 2, 9, 16, and 23, 2pm until dark. Events are free. This event is family-friendly and pet-friendly (please keep all dogs on a leash). For more information, contact Debbie Meyer at [email protected] or 919.357.6142.

Parking Directions: Come down Wild Horse Run to the end. Please do not park on this road. On the right-hand side, go through the wooden gates and park on the right lawn. In the event that the right lawn is full, folds will be there to guide you to parking on the left. There is plenty of parking, so please follow their guidance and do not block any roads going in or out.
The farm is not paved but there are gravel and grass areas. Parts of the property can be navigated with care for those with walkers or wheelchairs, including the outdoor area where tents are set up and where the musicians perform. Many individuals with walkers and wheelchairs, including the artists themselves, attend the event every year. Please contact the event organizer for additional accessibility questions.
The history behind the event
The Come Out and Play Sculpture Show started in 2002 to mark the first anniversary of 9/11 and has continued since then in the spirit of promoting kindness in the world through art and connecting people. Debbie Meyer and her husband, Eric Brantley, coordinate and host this amazing show each year and it is truly a rewarding gift!
