Named among America’s Prettiest Towns by Forbes.com, the Inner Banks’ town of Edenton is home to the biannual Easels in the Gardens event, set for April 15-16.
Strolling musicians, gardening workshops, an art auction at the Garden Party and fab food are all part of the draw, pun intended, benefiting the 1758 Cupola House, a National Historic Landmark dubbed North Carolina’s most significant early dwelling.
The easels part? That comes as you tour Edenton’s gardens full of lush spring blooms, while noteworthy artists paint interpretations of these horticultural gems en plein air. Get tickets at www.cupolahouse.org.
