FREE Or Cheap Things To Do In Raleigh NC This Week!

If you don't know by now, I'm from Raleigh, NC. A city that's growing daily with about 500,000 in population. It's a city with a small town feel and it's one of the best places to find jobs. You can ALWAYS find something to do here whether its the nightlife scenes, college games, or music events! But I'm here to give you the FREE or cheap events/ things to do this week Oct.15th-Oct. 22nd:

Even though you would still have to pay for food the State Fair offers free events such as music events, competitions, educational tutorials, and etc. If you're not up for spending a lot of money make sure you go on can day and get in free!

 

 

War Experience Exhibit at City of Raleigh Museum

A FREE special museum exhibit presented by Wake Tech students will run from Sept. 1, 2017 – Nov. 29, 2017 at the City of Raleigh Museum. America’s Wars: Individual Experience and Collective Memory opens Friday, Sept. 1, sponsored by a first-ever grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities. Students curated the powerful exhibit, which features hundreds of personal artifacts and memories – medals, uniforms, maps, letters, photographs, and more. Through interviews with Raleigh-area veterans, through personal artifacts and mementos, through popular culture (videos, music, games), this exhibit looks at how we look at war.
