Got to Be NC Festival Friday, May 17-Sunday, May 19 The Got to Be NC Festival — dubbed a mini-state fair, only in May — comes to the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh for three days of carnival games and rides, live music, food, and agricultural displays.

Audubon's Birds of America Ongoing; video experience through Sept. 15 The Birds of America by John James Audubon — four of only 200 complete sets known to exist — are now on display as part of the North Carolina Museum of Art's free permanent collection in Raleigh. In the new Audubon Gallery in the east wing, the NCMA is presenting Audubon's work in special cases designed for each of the enormous "double elephant" volumes, with hydraulic lifts that allow staff to periodically turn pages to display a new selection of birds. The opening selections, beginning on page one of each volume, will remain on view until May 18, when the pages will be turned. The pages will again be turned Aug. 17 and Nov. 16, putting four new birds on display each time. The display coincides with The Audubon Experience, an immersive video room, adjacent to the gallery, that surrounds the visitor with scenes from forest and jungles, mimicking what Audubon would have experienced in his world travels.
