Fayetteville City Council Hosts Dogwood Festival

People listen to Rivermist while performing at the Dogwood Festival on Friday, April 22, 2022.

Fayetteville will donate $15,000 to pay for the dogwood festival, despite concerns from some city council members about the variety of entertainment at the event.

The Board decided to provide funding by a vote of 9 to 1 in a working meeting on Monday. The board asked Sarah Grace Snipes, the festival’s executive director, to develop an action plan for how the festival would address the board’s concerns.

Councilwoman Shakayla Ingram voted against a proposal made by Pro Tem Mayor Katie Jensen.

Snipes informed the board that the festival was having cash flow problems. She said the organization is still paying for this year’s dogwood festival, which took place in April.
