2014: “The Year of Building Cultural Bridges”

Sister Cities of Cary

Our Mission is to foster international understanding by establishing liaisons with cities in other countries.

We believe in building cultural bridges - both with our sister cities and across the cultural organizations that call Cary home.  We have a number of programs planned for 2014 that build on that theme.

Upcoming SCAC Events

Next SCAC Board Meeting

Our Annual Meeting will be held on April 17 at 7:30 pm at the Page-Walker Arts & History Center.  This meeting is open to all SCAC members.  We will elect two new board members this year.  The meeting also gives everyone the opportunity to volunteer for a committee.  You do not need to be a board member to serve on a committee and it is a great way to become involved with SCAC!

Childrens' Day Festival of Cary

If you have children or grandchildren, you won't want to miss the annual Children's Day Festival of Cary.  This year's festival will be held on Saturday, April 19 from 11 am to 5 pm at the Sertoma Amphitheater in Bond Park.  This is a FREE event and features groups of young performers representing over 10 different cultural groups that call Cary home.  We will also have crafts for kids, food from a number of cultural organizations and, of course, food trucks.  Be sure to bring your children to this event for, and by, and about kids.

Spring Daze

The Town of Cary's annual Spring Daze Arts and Crafts Festival will take place in Bond Park the Saturday after the Children's Day Festival - April 26.  Sister Cities of Cary will have a space on Cultural Arts Row so be sure to drop by and meet us.
