First Saturday in November
November 05, 2022
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.
The Festival has two stages of entertainment. Featured bands take the Main Stage throughout the day and festivalgoers 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. We also have added an Antique Tractor Show!!
