Held annually in Dunn the first weekend in November. The festival’s goal is to bring recognition to one of North Carolina’s prime agricultural products “cotton,” and through this process attract people to Dunn’s downtown. We have entertainment on 2 stages, food and craft vendors, Kiddie Land for the children, a classic car show sponsored by the Shriner’s, and an Antique Tractor Show sponsored by Quality Equipment! Also we will have cotton gin tours every 30 minutes and you can find FREE tickets for those at our information tent that will be set up during the festival! There’s family fun for all ages with an awesome food court so mark your calendars now and SAVE the Date to join us for the 21st Annual NC Cotton Festival!! Also, Please Note – There is NO Photo Contest this year! Applications are available on July 1st of EVERY year for the festival!
