Dogwood Festival

April 27 - April 30

Located in the heart of eastern North Carolina, the community of Farmville has proudly hosted the Farmville Dogwood Festival for the past 34 years. The festival is held each April on the town commons. The manicured lawn of the commons is dotted with stately oaks, azaleas, dogwoods and a burst of color from annuals and perennials. Visitors make an annual pilgrimage to Farmville to reunite with family and friends.

The Dogwood Festival has been honored as a legacy festival by the Library of Congress. The festival proudly reaches across all demographics to provide a weekend of entertainment that appeals to all patrons. Most of the festival guests live in a 50 mile radius of Farmville. Festival attendance has been estimated in some years at over 30,000.

The center of the commons features the arts and crafts pavilion. It is the focal point of the festival, displaying the artistic talents and workmanship of the artisans of eastern North Carolina. These wares are available for sale to the public. The festival committee carefully selects artisans that compliment each other and provide a diverse array of craftsmanship. Examples of past artisan wares have included woodworking, stained glass, pottery, jewelry, framed artwork, photography, soaps and many other handcrafted treasures.
