SPARKcon hits Raleigh, NC

A Showcase of Creativity
September 16th-19th
Downtown Raleigh, NC

Back and bigger than ever, SPARKcon, a "creative potluck" of ideas, art, music and culture, returns to Raleigh September 16th through the 19th.

Partnered with the Visual Art Exchange, a Raleigh non-profit committed to supporting local artists and connecting them with the community, SPARKcon is an arts festival like no other.  For 4 days, downtown Raleigh will be over taken with art, design, fashion, film, theater, dance, music and more.  Its a chance to interact with hundreds of emerging artists and designers from all over the triangle at one time in one place.

Using a combination of networking and open calls for participants, volunteer organizers create diverse and representative events to show off local talent.  It's a unique and original event run by the community, for the community.  If you were waiting for your one chance to see what the triangle art culture is all about, this is your chance.

Many events are free and open to the public.  SPARKS range from art markets to performances to street painting contests.  Check out the complete list of events to find the ones you are interested in.  Most events will take place on or around Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh.

The Arrowhead Inn is a quick, 30 minute drive from SPARKcon.  After an intense day of creative experiences, relax with us for a quiet weekend get-a-way in Durham, NC.

Durham Ranks #1 in Best Places to Retire

Admittedly, we love Durham.  You only have to scan through a page of blogs to see that.  We do realize, however, that some readers may like a second opinion on the matter, so here it is: ranks Durham #1 on their newly released list of the 25 Best Places to Retire.  Not only is our city widely populated with golf courses and parks for the active at heart, but we also proudly boast one of the country's top universities for continuing education, a world renowned medical center and a quickly growing cultural arts and music scene.

Check out the complete story and the other top US cities to retire in here.

We're not saying you have to stay for good, but we think you'd love to visit.  Book your fall stay at the Arrowhead Inn in Durham, North Carolina today and experience for yourself what the fuss is all about!
