PITTSBORO — To commemorate the arrival of several new tenants and completion of its event forum, Mosaic at Chatham Park will host a series of free concerts and makers markets over the first three weekends in October.
“We’re looking to have a great event for our community and showcase some local favorites,” said Kirk Bradley, Mosaic’s developer.
Each weekend will feature a different genre: R&B, rock and roll and Americana.
“And we’ll have tons of food and food trucks,” Bradley said. “We’ll have wine and beer available and the Boys & Girls Club of Pittsboro will be the recipient of part of the proceeds from those sales.”
Dining options will include Cousins Maine Lobster, Town Hall Burger & Beer, O’Ya Cantina, Maple View Ice Cream and more. Several local artists and vendors — such as Ava Arts, Frickery Frackery Pottery, Hempsmith and Nemesis Jewelry — will be selling their wares.
On Oct. 9, Mosaic’s activities roster will include a children’s business fair, sponsored by the Chatham Chamber of Commerce. It will be “the largest entrepreneurship event for kids in North America,” according to the Chamber’s website. “This half-day market gives children the opportunity to showcase their very own businesses.”
For more information on the fair and how children can apply to participate, visit www.childrensbusinessfair.org/pittsboro-nc.
“It’s all going to be great,” Bradley said. “We want to have festivals and things of that nature at Mosaic and so these weekends in October will be a real precursor to what’s going to happen, what you will be able to see. We’re hoping to have some types of programming or activities three or four days a week as we as we roll into 2022.”
A complete list of food options and makers market participants is available at www.mosaicatchathampark.com/makers-market, but highlights are in the justaposed box. The lawn opens at 4 p.m. on Fridays and concerts begin at 5 p.m.; Saturday concerts begin at 1 p.m. and makers markets will run until 5 p.m. Event operators recommend attendees bring a lawn chair or blanket.
