A Historic Celebration of All Things Spring

Spring  in Winston-Salem is more than just a walk in the park. It’s a step back in time through Winston-Salem's Historic Gardens Collection. Or served by the glass at an award-winning Yadkin Valley winery -- the largest wine region in North Carolina. Throughout April Winston-Salem celebrates spring and the art of craft beer during NC Beer Month. From vineyards and galleries to farm-to-fork menus inspired by more than 250 years of rich traditions, Winston-Salem is more than just a better way to spend your time. It’s a Southern Wake-Up Call.

Spring Festival & Pottery Fair in Historic Old Salem

Say hello to Spring in historic Salem as Old Salem Museums & Gardens hosts its annual Spring Festival, this year titled “A Community of Health,” on Saturday, May 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The day-long festivities celebrate highlight the newly reopened Doctor's House and its new exhibition “The Moravian Way of Health and Healing,” which demonstrates for the first time the Moravians’ holistic approach to health and healing—a physical, spiritual, and psychological system that developed over time and was unequaled in America in the late 1700s and the early 1800s.

Activities for all ages promise to be educational and fun for the whole family, including a hands-on herbal tea activity and historic trade demonstrations. The Spring Festival is a ticketed event and all Spring Festival activities are included with All-in-One tickets, which are $27 for adults and $13 for students.

In conjunction with the Festival, Old Salem is also hosting its seventh annual Pottery Fair on the Square the same day. The Pottery Fair is included in the price of an Old Salem All-in-One ticket or is $5 per person for ages 13 and up. The Pottery Fair is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and more than 30 potters from across North Carolina display and sell their utilitarian and art pottery on Salem Square. With a variety of potters participating, it is the perfect place to shop for unique gifts for upcoming Father’s Day, spring graduates, and summer brides and grooms.
In the event of rain and/or strong wind, the Fair will be relocated to the concourse of the Old Salem Visitor Center at 900 Old Salem Road.
