Durham Fruit Parties

The Fruit is a former produce warehouse constructed in 1926 alongside downtown Durham’s main railroad track. Under the leadership of Tim Walter, The Fruit has transformed itself into a multifarious art space and creative playground.

The Durham Fruit at 305 South Dillard Street has a fascinating history, filled with colorful stories. Perhaps you have heard of the 305 South Anti-Mall? Or perhaps you have raved at The Fruit after the Art of Cool Festival? Or participated in a photo shoot? Or attended a wedding anniversary? Or visited an amazing room-sized art exhibit?

The Fruit is 22,000 square feet of social enterprise. Durham Fruit is multi-faceted, willingly experimental, cutting edge, and a huge venue.

This past New Year’s Eve photographer Chrystal Kelly captured the extent of the transformation at Masquerade Party held at the Durham Fruit.
