Not your average fundraiser. This is a house party benefiting Hillsborough Arts!
Join us on Saturday, March 18 at the home of local textile artist and HAC Board Member, Ali Givens, for an evening of spring surprises. Live music by Blake Christiana of Yarn, festive food & drink, and curated arts experiences are the recipe for a night you won't want to miss.
Because this party is at a private residence, location details will be shared with ticket buyers the week of the event.
Break out your party gear! Dressy casual attire encouraged.

Why Your Support Matters
As we prepare to launch the 2023 season of Last Fridays & the Art Walk and another year of FREE, immersive arts programs, we invite our community to come alongside us & support the future of Hillsborough Arts.
Spring equinox symbolizes balance, renewed energy, creative reawakening, and fresh perspective - which are also elements of our organization’s intentional transformation over the past two years.
All funds raised from HAC’s Spring Equinox go towards mission-critical services this year, including operating the Gallery & Gift Shop, Last Fridays & the Art Walk, Solstice Lantern Walk, ArtCycle, Public Art, and more. As demand for our programs increases, your support will ensure that the one and only Hillsborough Arts Council can persevere to build community through the arts!
A Special Thanks to Our Supporters
Hillsborough Arts events require a tremendous amount of energy to host, including time & talent from HAC board members, volunteers, and staff. Spring Equinox is no different, and we are grateful for those who have made it possible for us to celebrate Hillsborough’s creative community with you!
