K-Fest: Knightdale Arts and Education Festival



Understanding that education is the pathway to success, the mission of the Knightdale Education Festival is to connect community members with local non-profits, educational, wellness and cultural arts opportunities they may not otherwise be exposed to. This collaborative effort of community partners plays an important role in strengthening the educational component in Knightdale and Eastern Wake County.

This year, K-Fest will focus on the elements of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math). Vendors will provide interactive activities for participants to have an enriched festival experience. S.T.E.A.M. is a "movement championed by Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and widely adopted by institutions, corporations and individuals." Click here for more information on S.T.E.A.M.
