The High Point Furniture Market returns this weekend, bringing back some pre-pandemic traditions.

Safety measures will be in place for this fall’s market, including an indoor mask mandate that’s in effect for all of Guilford County. But market-goers will also see a return of some features that had been part of the market in the pre-COVID days. 

Big-time entertainment is back, with the critically acclaimed band Fitz and the Tantrums opening the market with a concert at Truist Point. And the Hospitality at Market program is back, offering networking and seminars for the first time since 2019.

The fall market will put a focus on sustainability in the home furnishings industry, with information on the latest trends in materials and designs.

The twice-a-year market gives a major boost to the High Point area economy. Pre-pandemic markets had an estimated regional impact of more than $6 billion.

The market is scheduled to run October 16-20.
