United Arts Council


The arts are a fundamental part of a vibrant community. That’s why we partner with schools and organizations to create events that enrich the lives of our neighbors across Wake County.

From hosting festivities like First Friday, the annual State of Arts & Culture in Wake County event, and our co-sponsorship of Pieces of Gold, we’re committed to building a flourishing local arts landscape.

Our annual “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” fundraiser pairs beautiful homes and gourmet food and wine with surprise visits from accomplished artists. The event benefits our Artists in the Schools program, which provides arts education and creative opportunities for Wake County students. It’s Southern hospitality at its finest and one of the most creative and memorable fundraisers around.

For a complete look at arts opportunities in our community, view our events calendar.
