Festival Details - "North Carolina Whirligig Festival"...

Start: Saturday, November 6, 2021 10:00AM
End: Sunday, November 7, 2021 5:00PM

The North Carolina Whirligig Festival is an all-inclusive, two-day arts festival that showcases the arts of the region, including the official NC Folk Art, Whirligigs, created by local artist, Vollis Simpson. The Whirligigs are 20-50 feet in height and incorporate highway and road signs, HVAC fans, bicycles, ceiling fans, various woods, steel rods, milkshake mixers, and various other materials that form and support the artwork. Simpson also cut decrepit road signs into one-inch and larger squares so that the Whirligigs would be reflective at night. The festival is a community celebration in Historic Downtown Wilson of people and art in motion, held annually during the first full weekend in November. The festival specializes in recognizing our Wilson heritage and community by showcasing active artists who feature works designed with re-purposed, recycled, and reused materials, as the namesake artist did with his whimsical windmills. Visitors can enjoy 4 music stages, 100+ vendors, a Whirli-Kidz Zone, and so much more. Come see all that the North Carolina Whirligig Festival has to offer!
