What’s your fantasy?

The Festival of Legends fantasy faire returns to Storybook Farm, featuring medieval-themed music, crafts, art, clothing, food and – of course – jugglers. Lots and lots of jugglers. Also: Jousters. And mead. Verily.

Getting handsy

Prepare for fierce competition at the second annual “Triangle Rock, Paper, Scissors Showdown.” Proceeds go to the Raleigh-based children’s nonprofit Learning Together. Quick refresher: Rock beats scissors; scissors beats paper; paper beats rock.

One of those daze

Cary presents its 20th annual Spring Daze Arts & Crafts festival, with the usual array of vendors, food and entertainment. Look performances on five stages, plus roving entertainers like the Motley Tones and the mysterious Professor Whizzpop.

Party with a pie crust

Once a month, the Hillsborough Arts Council’s Last Fridays series gathers artists, musicians, food vendors and craftspeople for a sprawling outdoor party. This weekend’s musical headliner: Eight-piece Afrobeat jazz ensemble The Brand New Life. There’s also a pie contest. Nothing wrong with that.
