Knightdale Arts & Education Festival



Knightdale's annual Arts & Education Festival, also known as K-Fest, will take place on Saturday, August 17, 2024, at Knightdale Station Park from 10:00 am-1:00 pm.  There will be inflatables, performances by local acts, food trucks, a DJ, and more!  

Understanding that education is the pathway to success, the mission of the Knightdale Education Festival is to connect community members with local non-profits and educational, wellness, and cultural art opportunities that 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.

As the new academic year draws near, we are preparing to equip our students with the tools and resources to improve their learning experience. We strongly believe every child should have an equal chance to learn and develop. We have prepared a day filled with art, music, food, and, most of all, FUN!

We hope you will come out and celebrate the wonderful worlds of creative art and education in our community at the Arts & Education Festival 2024!

 *Please note the event details may change at any time.*

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, a school supply giveaway will be held during the event.  Bookbags filled with school supplies can be picked up under the Pavilion facing Knightdale Station Run.  There will be tables set up near the end with members of the Knightdale Rotary Club ready to assist.
