One goal of the Festivals Committee is to return money to the local community in the form of grants to nonprofit organizations. The Lazy Daze grants program is directed toward arts programs or projects that benefit Cary and its citizens. This year the committee is pleased to offer community groups $40,000 from the 42nd annual Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival that took place on August 25 and 26, 2018. 

To date, the Festivals Committee has awarded over $650,000 in grants to various non-profit organizations.
