What is the

Back 2 School Festival?

The Back 2 School Festival is an annual event in its sixth year serving Watauga County. And it will take place Saturday, August 10, from 10a-2p at Watauga High School. If you haven't heard of this festival, it has three main goals:


  • Help Watauga County kids start school feeling confident and prepared by providing school supplies, backpacks, clothing, haircuts, etc.

  • Offset costs of supplies for local parents working hard to make ends met

  • Provide teachers with the tools they need to lead children to success


The Back 2 School Festival is a community collaborative event to help over 1,200 local kids start school with the tools they need. Relieve parents who may be struggling to afford the high costs of back-to-school shopping while helping teachers equip their classrooms for a year of learning.
