About Fest in the West

In 1970, Cary had a population of 7,686. Today, the population is 168, 000. In the last 20 years, most of that growth has been in the West.

However, all the festivals and cultural arts events and chances to meet your neighbors happen in the center of town. Lazy Daze, Wheels on Academy, Harvest Festival, The Heart of the Holidays, and the Cary Christmas Parade are amazing But they all happen in Downtown Cary.

No festival takes place out West.

In 2016 we produced the first Fest in the West to help fill that void for community so desperately needed in Western Cary.

We’ve put together a Food Truck Rodeo, the area’s best craft breweries, Live Music, fun contests, an Arts & Crafts Village, and an engaging Kids Zone . Add to that the rural heritage of Western Cary and it might just be perfect.

Plus, it’s free!

See y’all at Fest in the West.
