The North Carolina Association of Festivals & Events serves as a year-round forum for Festival and Event coordinators, key volunteers, and vendors to the industry. The organization exists to:
- Facilitate information sharing, training, networking, and identification of resources for Festivals and Events throughout North Carolina,
- Serve as a clearing house for information on Festivals and Events staged throughout the year in North Carolina,
- Provide appropriate support to the membership as identified by the group.
As the needs of the members change, so do the activities of the organization.
