Cary strives to showcase the arts. With its art galleries, shows and festivals, or concert series and holiday celebrations, we are brimming with arts and culture.

Cary is a designated North Carolina Fit Community. With more than 20 public parks, a 79-mile greenway system with six park trails, 11 greenway trails, three special-use facilities and eight staffed facilities, Cary residents find leisure in a number of physical activities.

A variety of family-friendly activities are regularly held at Cary’s Booth Amphitheatre and Sertoma Amphitheatre at Bond Park, such as “Movies by Moonlight” and various outdoor summer concerts and events.

Located just 15 minutes from Cary, Raleigh holds an immense amount of art and culture as it is the capital of North Carolina.
