Thomasville, NC is full of opportunities for fun and play. Not only does the city have festivals and great food, but it also showcases a gigantic chair that is a must see for any culture enthusiast.

Thomasville's Big Festival
Everybody's Day Festival, the longest running festival in North Carolina, is held annually in downtown Thomasville. Originating in 1908, the festival features more than 200 food and craft vendors, as well as games and rides for children. Thomasville Medical Center sponsors the event, and the North Carolina Association of Festivals has recognized the festival with several awards since 1997.

Spring Daze at the Depot

The Spring Daze at the Depot, which began in 2004, is a great place to release that cabin fever that built up over the winter months. Attendees can purchase flowers and hanging baskets, while enjoying food, live music, classic cars and crafts. And with more than 80 vendors to browse through, you are sure to find something to take home.

Live Music in Davidson County

Davidson County hosts a number of musical events throughout the year, most notably the Third Thursday evening concert series, held once a month from May through September. All concerts are free and open to the public. Another option for music lovers is the once-a-month, Thursday night Alive After Five concert series. The parking lot behind Lanier Hardware is the soundstage for this series. A slew of other musical events includes Sunset Sounds in downtown Thomasville, Music on the Lawn during Uptown Lexington's Summer Strolls, and Childress Vineyards' Music in the Vineyards and Wine Down Thursdays.
