Due to High Point City Lake Park undergoing major renovations, the annual Day in the Park Festival is being postponed to September 16, 2023.

Day in the Park 2023

Day in the Park returns to the Piedmont for its 49th festival with fun-filled, family-oriented entertainment, crafts, food and much more on Saturday, September 17. Nestled in the beautiful High Point City Lake Park, the festival is presented by the High Point Arts Council in cooperation with the High Point Parks & Recreation Department.

The festival will be held from 11:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. and the park is located at 602 W. Main Street in Jamestown. Admission is free!

Visual Artists and Crafters

Visual artists and crafters will be on hand in Marketplace Bazaar to display and sell their original pieces, including pottery, jewelry, photography, note cards, honey products, wooden and sewn crafts, plus many more. This will be a great opportunity to not only stock up on holiday gifts, but also to support our local artists!

Folk Life

The Folk Life area brings history to life with a Civil War field medical hospital, plus many demonstrations by craftsmen in the arts of spinning, pottery, basket weaving, woodturning, blacksmithing, and chainsaw sculpting among others. And, as always, the inviting smell of funnel cakes, roasted corn, polish sausages, pizza, kettle popcorn and burgers will fill the air throughout the day.
