Please join High Point Human Relations for Hi Fest! The High Point Festival of Cultures.

Celebrate, experience, & learn about the diverse cultures of Greater High Point and the Piedmont Triad! This fun and informative festival will provide pieces about fair, safe, and affordable housing as well as educational pieces about diversity.

This year, in partnership with the Latino Migration Project, we will be video recording the oral histories of High Pointers for our Building Integrated Communities Initiative.The goal is to catalog and preserve the stories of migrant, immigrant and non-immigrant families residing here in High Point. If you or someone you know would like to participate as one of our story tellers, please contact Hannah Gil using the information below:
