First Saturday in November

This annual festival celebrates and brings recognition to one of North Carolina’s prime agricultural products, cotton! This is an exciting event for the community and attracts local area residents and visitors to Dunn’s historic downtown.

There are more than 130 food and craft booth spaces available each year. Festival attendees enjoy the shopping opportunities, as well as taking tours through an operating cotton gin. Each year, festival fans enjoy a Cotton Photo Contest and submit their images of cotton blooms, cotton production, and bouquets. Winners are selected and are announced at the Festival and shared in The Daily Record’s festival brochure.

The Festival has two stages of entertainment. Featured bands take the Main Stage throughout the day and festival goers also enjoy dancing and karaoke on the second stage.

The event also coincides each year with the Dunn Shriner’s Car Show, where over 100 antique and custom cars compete for best in show.
