The Farmville Dogwood Festival, now in its 23rd year, is a celebration of the community and of spring. The Festival, which attracts approximately 15,000 guests each year, is held on the last full weekend in April and has gained a reputation as one of the preeminent community festivals in eastern North Carolina. Set amidst the charming small town atmosphere of Farmville's Town Common and Main Street areas, the Festival offers a wide variety of activities and entertainment for every member of the family.
The musical components of the Festival feature performances by local and regional artists, as well as, nationally known entertainers. Craft persons, artists and commercial firms come from far and near to display and offer their creations and products to festival goers. An extensive selection of foods are offered each year promising to offer something to tempt every palate.
The Festival also offers many special diversions for our younger guests, such as Kid's CoolFest, family-oriented entertainers and amusement rides for all ages.
The Festival, with the exception of the amusement rides and the Saturday evening main concert, is offered entirely free of charge to our guests. Come join us for some old fashioned, family oriented fun at the Farmville Dogwood Festival.
