Free events coming to Mosaic next month


PITTSBORO — To commemorate the arrival of several new tenants and completion of its event forum, Mosaic at Chatham Park will host a series of free concerts and makers markets over the first three weekends in October.

“We’re looking to have a great event for our community and showcase some local favorites,” said Kirk Bradley, Mosaic’s developer.

Each weekend will feature a different genre: R&B, rock and roll and Americana.

“And we’ll have tons of food and food trucks,” Bradley said. “We’ll have wine and beer available and the Boys & Girls Club of Pittsboro will be the recipient of part of the proceeds from those sales.”

Dining options will include Cousins Maine Lobster, Town Hall Burger & Beer, O’Ya Cantina, Maple View Ice Cream and more. Several local artists and vendors — such as Ava Arts, Frickery Frackery Pottery, Hempsmith and Nemesis Jewelry — will be selling their wares.

On Oct. 9, Mosaic’s activities roster will include a children’s business fair, sponsored by the Chatham Chamber of Commerce. It will be “the largest entrepreneurship event for kids in North America,” according to the Chamber’s website. “This half-day market gives children the opportunity to showcase their very own businesses.”

“It’s all going to be great,” Bradley said. “We want to have festivals and things of that nature at Mosaic and so these weekends in October will be a real precursor to what’s going to happen, what you will be able to see. We’re hoping to have some types of programming or activities three or four days a week as we as we roll into 2022.”
