Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources


Fall registration for Cary residents is now open!  Registration for nonresidents begins August 18. Look for copies of the new Fall program guides in Cary libraries, the Cary Chamber of Commerce, and any Town of Cary staffed facility.  The summer guide is also still available with summer programming through the end of August. Find all our guides online too.

The 38th Annual Lazy Daze Festival is right around the corner on August 23. Join us in Downtown Cary to take in the sights and sounds, visit hundreds of artists' booths, and enjoy live music and entertainment. The season of outdoor concerts keeps rocking on at Koka Booth Amphitheater and The Cary Theater features weekly films in an intimate setting. WakeMed Soccer Park will host the US Women's National Team vs. Switzerland to a sold-out crowd in August. And the facilities are bursting with activities for all. Get out and enjoy parks, recreation, and cultural arts in Cary.
