The High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau (HPCVB) recently announced it will kick of the school year with a Back-to-School Bash at the Regional Visitors Center on Tuesday, August 30. This is a community event that will include participation from various organizations, including High Point University, High Point Arts Council, Theatre Art Galleries and a local brewery. 

Uncle Maddio’s Pizza will be providing refreshments. Attendees will enjoy activities such as corn hole, giveaways and more. The event serves to bring together students of all ages as well as the community at large to celebrate the new school year.

“We love having the HPU students back in town, and encourage all students, including elementary, middle and high school, to come and participate in the back-to-school celebration,” says Nancy Bowman, director of sales and marketing for the HPCVB. 

About the High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau

The High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau (HPCVB) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote and encourage economic development in High Point through travel and tourism. The CVB works closely with meeting planners to bring events to High Point and to enhance their experience here, providing white glove assistance with event planning tasks including registration, transportation, and coordination among various venues. These services ensure that every group event will be successful down to the last detail because we want each visitor to make yourself at home. Established by state legislation in 1984, the HPCVB is an independent 501(c) 6 nonprofit organization funded by a self-imposed three percent room occupancy tax on local hotels. No taxpayer funds — city, county or state—are used to fund the HPCVB. For more information, visit highpoint.org.
