Full Moon Festival

The West Salem Art Hotel and friends plan an interactive art and agriculture festival at the hotel, West Salem Public House, and Apple & Green Farm. We will be utilizing the historic two-acre area of this beloved West Salem neighborhood. In the spirit of community, we are uniting a local collection of art, maker, and vintage vendors, including live musicians, accompanied by visual and performing art, workshops, and demonstrations led by artists and non-profit organizations.

This event will include games, a costume trunk, face painting, and more family-friendly amusement. The six-hour event will unfold into the evening, where we can watch 2022's harvest moon rise over exquisite farmland under colorful string lights. There will be an assortment of delicious food options from local pop-ups, food trucks, and yummy beer and beverages.

The Full Moon Festival will be on the Harvest Moon, September 10, 2022, from 4 pm-10 pm on the block of Albert and Green St. in West Salem.

The West Salem Art Hotel, Apple and Green Farm, and West Salem Public House are excited to host this magical inaugural event!

Haydee Thompson is the owner/curator/designer of the West Salem Art Hotel. Haydee is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts with a degree in Drama. After graduation in the early '90s, she moved to NYC to pursue an acting career and found herself as a personal assistant to artist/musician David Byrne. Haydee spent over a decade in the Big Apple until, shortly after 9/11, she decided to move back to Winston-Salem and into the Wherehouse, an Artist and Music collective located in the abandoned downtown. In 2003 she and her fellow artists purchased a 1971 charter bus, converted it to run on vegetable oil, and toured the country for three months with a variety show. Eventually, Haydee turned the Wherehouse into her first Art Hotel with much success. In March of 2021, she moved the location of the Art Hotel and rebranded it under the current name of the West Salem Art Hotel.
