Up Your Arts does a lot of events, whether promoting the ones other organizations are putting on, or organizing our own. But sometimes you just need to go a little bigger. That's why Up Your Arts has teamed up with local municipalities and regional organizations to help put on these annual festivals.
North Carolina 4th of July Festival
Independence Day in Southport
The official NC 4th of July Festival in Southport is more than a day–we pack a whole week's worth of fun and sun on our beautiful coast into this crowd-pleasing event!
Southport Plein Air Festival
Artists come to the Southport Plein Air Festival from all over North Carolina every year to paint in the open air, following a European tradition popular in the 1800s. This unique festival is great fun!
