Stars Theater & Arts Center – Fuquay Varina

Ballroom in Stars Theater and Arts CenterWe are getting a little off topic from what we had earlier this week on different forms of Transportation, but to be honest I know the ones in Cary and Raleigh very well! I have not heard of anything like the C Tran or Lyft in Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina or Apex. But if there is please feel free to send me a comment so I can educate myself and others!

Next week’s theme was going to look at what else the community has to offer, so how about looking into local Art Centers? First up we are show casing Fuquay Varina and the Stars Theater & Arts Center. The center provides drama classes to help increase confidence in children, as well as doubles are a venue for your next event! It has a unique Castle design exterior with a lobby, ballroom, dance studio, a theater that holds 147 and a large loft. You may rent out one section of the building or event the entire place for your next event! How cool is that??? Check out their contact information below to get more details on the center itself.

Aviator Brewing Company – Fuquay Varina


Aviator brewery
The Aviator Brewery located in Fuquay Varina has a very interesting history, and the name pretty much says it all! They opened in 2008 in an airplane hangar using dairy tanks which held about 300 gallons each. Due to the popularity of the beer, they moved to a larger location and have added several additions and fermenters. As of June this year they canned over one million cans of beer, pretty exciting! Their brewery offers tours Thursday through Sunday, please make sure to check out their website (address below) for more specifics.
In addition to the Brewery, there is also the Tap House and Smoke House. The Tap House is located at 600 E. Broad Street in Fuquay, opened in 2009 in an old train depot. If you ask me, they have the coolest locations going on! The Smoke House is located across the street and opened it’s doors in 2011. They have a wonderful catering menu, and you need to try their smoked wings when you get a chance, they are worth it!
