Come one, come all.

That’s the message the City of High Point put out this week for an upcoming community festival meant for anyone who enjoys a good time and some neighborly comradery.

On Wednesday, March 2, the city announced that High Point Public Library is hosting the aptly named “Community Festival,” which will be an outdoor event in the parking lot of the High Point Public Library at 901 N. Main St. in High Point.

The family-friendly event will feature attractions for all ages.

The festival will take place on Saturday, March 12, and the fun will begin at 10 a.m. and run until about  3 p.m.

Given that we live in a time of high inflation, the ticket price is right: totally free for everyone.

So, what’s included in that price?  Well, the event will feature a variety of vendors, kids’ activities and several performances from a diversity of cultures.

Those performances include the Suah African Dance Theatre at 11 a.m., the Andrews High School Marching Band at noon, a Guilford Native American Fashion showcase at 1 p.m., and Leap-MJIDE School of Dance at 2:15 p.m.

For the kids and baseball fans, the High Point Rockers Mascot known as  “HYPE” will attend and be engaging the crowd.

No community festival is complete without a food truck, and, at the March 12 Community Festival, food will be available for purchase from a Wingz and Thyngz food truck.

Once again, the event is free and open to everyone.

The High Point Public Library features a lot of community events every year and, according to city leaders, the library has the goals of “nurturing the joy of reading, sharing the power of knowledge, strengthening the sense of community and enhancing economic and cultural vitality.”
