Movement Fest


The Town of Forest City and the Grahamtown Team are partnering to host the Movement Fest & Back 2 School Bash on Saturday, August 3, 2024! This county-wide event is our initiative to improve the quality of life of youth and adults in Rutherford County by showcasing the variety of community resources available. Our goals are to:

- Showcase the availability of healthy options in our county
- Provide contact information about various agencies in the community
- Give information about youth and adult activities that are available throughout the year
- Promote healthy and active lifestyles amongst youth and adults in our community
- Offer resources to help alleviate financial burdens for back-to-school shopping

We’ll have vendors, games, activities, workouts, and more! Each attendee will receive a goodie bag to collect promotional materials. Admission is free to the public. Come join us on August 3 from 10AM-3PM!
If you need transportation to this event, call RutherfordHELP at 828-785-2087.
