But the real highlight of the festival is the stunning dogwood trees that will be in full bloom. Visitors can take a break from the festival sights and enjoy a walk through Downtown Farmville to take in the beauty of the dogwood trees and visit local shops and restaurants. This Fantastic festival is a keystone event in Pitt County culture.
