The partnership between the Kernersville administration and its residents is evident in the town's dedication to community events. Seasonal festivals feature music, arts and crafts, fun games for kids and more?and the popularity of these events indicates that families, friends and neighbors wholeheartedly enjoy getting together and celebrating their town and its culture. Annually held events include the Spring Folly, Honeybee Festival, 4th of July Parade, Downtown Trick or Treat and the Christmas Parade.
The Kernersville Parks & Recreation also manages an annual calendar of programs, classes and activities. From arts classes to youth sports competitions, there is almost always something fun happening at one or more of Kernersville's parks or public sites. Even those who avoid the official calendar are sure to find some pleasant way to pass the time. Residents might spend a Saturday afternoon watching their kids play soccer at the Ivey M. Redmon Sports Complex (formerly Beeson Park), or they might have a family barbecue at Harmon Park. The Kernersville Community Pool & Water Park offers a great spot to cool off during the warmer months, and tennis pros can practice their swing at Fourth of July Park.
The Piedmont Triad region has a very strong arts culture. The nearby North Carolina School of the Arts not only provides high quality education in the arts, but the school and its students also produce several hundred performances each year. These activities are strongly supported by residents and a long list of area arts groups. Winston-Salem, for example, has dance groups, a choral symphony, a children's chorus, a crafts guild and a cinema society, to name a few.
