Carolina Brewsfest


May 12, 2018 • SAVE THE DATE!

Held in the spring of each year, the Carolina Brewsfest Craft Beer Festival in downtown High Point celebrates North Carolina’s exciting and rapidly growing craft brewing community, and our state’s great beer! The Carolina Brewsfest Craft Beer Festival is an exciting and unique experience, further enhanced by partnering fantastic beer with the Carolina Brewsfest Half Marathon. Each year it promises to bring a fun event with beer, running, music, food trucks and activities to appeal to a wide variety of folks from all around the Triad, North Carolina, and beyond.

Cycling Classic

The 2017 High Point Cycling Classic marks the return of one of the most well attended and celebrated sports and entertainment events in High Point, North Carolina’s history. Founded in 2010 by avid High Point cyclists Chip Duckett, Randy Carda and Rodney Simpson, the High Point Cycling Classic quickly became one of the community’s most anticipated gatherings. The Classic is back thanks to substantial community support from the City of High Point, Business High Point, Inc., the High Point Convention and Visitors Bureau, High Point University and many other local, loyal corporations and individuals.

In its original tenure, the High Point Cycling Classic evolved into one of the most respected Criterium series races in North Carolina and the Southeast. Backed by the High Point tourism and business community, the city hosted the 2013 and 2014 USA Cycling Professional Criterium National Championships. The event was praised by competitors for the exciting downtown race course and the quality of the event organization. After each Classic, all available funds were distributed back into the community through a number of charitable entities. To date, over $100,000 has been granted to community organizations.

The High Point Cycling Classic enters an exciting new phase in 2017 as we celebrate a new relationship with the Bobby Labonte Foundation. We expect the new partnership with the Bobby Labonte Foundation to generate substantial funds available for grants to community nonprofit organizations. New this year, all proceeds will be awarded to local charities that support building strong futures for children and families in our local four-county area. So remember, all of your entry fees, sponsorship dollars, ticket purchases and any other dollar you spend at the Classic will go right back out to families here in our neighborhoods and benefit building stronger futures for our children!

GO FAR

Launched in 2003 in response to the childhood obesity epidemic, GO FAR is a comprehensive fitness program designed to teach children of all abilities about healthy eating habits, goal setting, and how to train for a 5K. GO FAR teaches kids that active, healthy lifestyles are fun and can be sustained throughout their lives.

Our 10-week, user-friendly curriculum provides coaches – teachers, parents, volunteers – with everything needed to lead a GO FAR club.

“Perhaps the best part of GO FAR is what it provides on an emotional level. These children work hard toward a goal and through a structured, supervised program, they make friends, become more fit.”
