The North Carolina Furnishings Festival

Located in High Point, "The Furniture Capital of the World," the festival celebrates North Carolina, the Piedmont region, and High Point as home to more furnishings manufacturing than any other area in our country. High Point also hosts the twice a year International Home Furnishings Market for retailers throughout the world. It's no wonder that the Annual NC Furnishings Festival (the first weekend in August) is a great celebration and destination for the general public.
