This year’s roster includes a diverse selection of bands, and attendees may also purchase food and beverages from local vendors.

In 2015, more than 37,000 customers began or ended their journey at the High Point station, which is served by the daily Carolinian (New York-Charlotte), Piedmont Service (Raleigh-Charlotte) trains and the Crescent (New York-New Orleans). The state-owned Piedmont and the state-subsidized Carolinian are primarily financed through funds from the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
