Frequently highlighted by Charlotte on the Cheap, the area’s popular go-to blog for free/low cost family entertainment, Cabarrus Arts Council Family Days are fun and free!

The Cabarrus Arts Council’s Family Days feature fun and creative activities for children in The Galleries and Davis Theatre and opportunities for anyone to visit The Galleries on a weekend. Each Family Day will be different and may include creative art projects in The Galleries, a performance or movie in the Davis Theatre and even activities on the front lawn of the Cabarrus County Historic Courthouse.

Children also will be able to do activities related to the current exhibition, including the “I Spy” art work scavenger hunt, “Art Box” craft projects and “Think About It” guided questionnaires.

People may visit any time between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Family Days are free! Children must be accompanied by an adult.
