Durham is full of diversity - diverse people, diverse ideas, diverse food, and diverse events. Just check out this partial list of events for the coming month; there's sure to be something for everyone.
Don't miss the 2010 Festival for the Eno July 3, 4, and 5, which will deliver non-stop performances by more than 100 performers on four stages, hands-on exhibits, demonstrations, and workshops celebrating regional nature, culture and history, and a juried crafts show of 100 of the Southeast's most talented artists. Tickets can be purchased online in advance of the festival for $13 or at the festival for $15 per day. A 3-day pass is available for $30.
Also stop in to see professional athletes, collegiate players, and local high school all-stars under one roof and on one court at the Greater NC Pro-Am, running from July 1 through August 8 at the McLendon-McDougald Gymnasium on the campus of North Carolina Central University. In its third year, the Great NC Pro-Am takes the game of basketball to a whole new level with rare opportunities to watch and seek autographs from Carolina, Duke, and N.C. State players as well as professional NBA players such as John Wall and Kevin Durant. Admission is free.
