This special event was organized to honor the local farmers by inviting them to bring their produce to sell at a farmers market. Farmers Day has grown to become one of the best street festivals in North Carolina with attendance estimated at over 15,000 visitors. The event is filled with street vendors, clowns, magicians, rides, games, the "Little Mr. and Miss Farmer" contest, and so much more. The street vendors pack up at 4:00 p.m. and the town gets ready for the street dance at 7:00 p.m. So, bring a lawn chair to enjoy the band and be ready to dance to their music. The evening ends with a beautiful fireworks display.
