Six Days in November - Nov. 14-19
The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County created the Annual Six Days in November Festival the week before Thanksgiving.
The crown jewel of the festival - Piedmont Craftsmen’s Fair - begins with gala activities Friday night and then opens to the public Saturday and Sunday, presenting work by premier fine craft artists of the Southeast and numerous workshops and presentation and annually contains a spectacular light show produced by faculty and students at the UNC-School of the Arts School of Design and Production.
The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County was established in 1949 and was the first locally established arts council in the United States. The Arts Council enriches the quality of life for people in Winston-Salem and neighboring communities by raising funds for the arts, advocating for the arts, sponsoring events in conjunction with other arts organizations, providing educational opportunities, strengthening cultural resources, developing social capital, and aiding economic development. In 2010, The Arts Council awarded more than $1.825 million in grants to 42 arts and cultural organizations and 19 individual artists.
