Building Community

July 6, 2015

You know that old adage, "home is where the heart is?" It represents a feeling that your true home is where you love to be.  Our Canton Labor Day sponsors are really turning out to show their love for our community by providing support for the 109th Labor Day Festival. 

Our presenting sponsor, Champion Credit Union, has been a part of the

community since 1932. 


"We believe in supporting the community that supports us, either with financial contributions, volunteer hours, or a collaboration of both," says Noralynn Gudger, Marketing & Communications Manager. "We want to see our community grow and thrive, and we try and help whenever we can."  As an organization, the credit union places emphasis on community while developing their strategic goals to ensure that decisions benefit not only existing members but potential members as well.


Duke Energy, Ken Wilson Ford and Haywood Tourism Authority have thrown their support in the ring.


Festival media sponsors, The Mountaineer, Smoky Mountain News, WNC Magazine and WPTL Radio exemplifies a similar dedication to community. These stakeholders are helping spread the word across the region that Canton is western North Carolina's small town.  Join us for the longest running Labor Day Festival in the south!  Be a part of our community and celebrate the western North Carolina worker whose grit and fierce determination survived the Great Depression, epic floods, multiple industrial revolutions and buy-outs. 


Experience community in a living breathing manufacturing town. September 5-7: 20 bands / 3 days / $0. Food, crafts, Buy Haywood Farmers Market, Papertown Kid's Village, Heritage Events and so much more!
