Second Saturdays in North Carolina

For the FIRST Saturday of the Summer, I hope everyone will be coming to see our Student Showcase of our local homeschool group's year of accomplishments!  But for the second Saturday of each month (June 11, July 9, and August 13), you can take advantage of educational and cultural events across the state of North Carolina, courtesy of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources program Second Saturdays.

Here are some of the places in the Triangle that will be hosting special events:

  • Alamance Battleground
  • Bennett Place
  • Bentonville Battlefield
  • Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum
  • Duke Homestead
  • Fort Dobbs
  • Historic Stagville
  • House in the Horseshoe
  • North Carolina Museum of Art
  • North Carolina Museum of History
  • North Carolina Transportation Museum
  • President James K. Polk Historic Site
  • Reed Gold Mine
  • Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art
  • State Capitol
  • Town Creek Indian Mound

There are sorts of different activities going on--historical re-enactments, craft demonstrations, art classes, musical performances, games for children, and, of course, FOOD!

This is a fun reason to visit some of the artistic or historical venues around the state that you've never seen before, or brings a new dimension to your favorite places to tour.
