The festival offers relief for local parents who are working hard to make ends meet! Any Watauga County families struggling to afford the high costs of sending their children back to school. School readiness shopping can easily cost over $160 per child, not including shoes and clothes! That is a heavy burden for middle and low-income families.

The Back 2 School Festival was founded on the belief that every child deserves to start the school year feeling confident and prepared. A child that feels confident is more likely to succeed.
