April is for Arts is a month-long celebration of the arts in Davidson. This year, the town has selected the weekend of April 28-30 to focus on the arts in town and is excited to have many exciting events planned for residents and visitors, notably its annual Gallery Crawl and Art on the Green festival.

The Gallery Crawl takes place on Friday, April 28 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Main Street and South Main Street businesses and sidewalks will be transformed into lively art galleries. Homewood Suites at the Circles @ 30 will also showcase many artists.
