Fall Festival

High Point University Fall Festival

Saturday, October 10, 2015  |  10AM – 4PM

High Point University is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for its second annual Fall Festival on Saturday, October 10! Last year we welcomed 35 exhibitors from the region to join us in a celebration in the art of making. 1,500 visitors from HPU and the surrounding community joined us for music, shopping, good eats and interactive fun. This year the event will occur in conjunction with HPU’s Alumni weekend.

Like last year, we have a limited number of slots and entry is competitive. Due to the many compliments we received regarding the wide variety of exhibits, we will continue that tradition. Unlike last year, we are going to dedicate one of our tents to a juried exhibition of small art works. This is intended to showcase the many talented artists in our region. Links to the separate applications are listed below.

Exhibitors/Vendors Application (June 1 Deadline )

  • For individuals/groups that engage in the creative process en route to the creation of a unique product. We are not looking for vendors of other people’s merchandise.
