Welcome to Uptowne.
The Core City Plan, adopted by City Council in 2008, identifies Uptowne as the defacto downtown of High Point. Given that our traditional downtown should more aptly be called the Showroom District, Uptowne has retained some of the unique character, restaurants and shops that will make it a place to go to see and be seen!
An informal Uptowne High Point Association was formed in 2009, and formalized in 2013. Over those four years, the organization worked to host the Ilderton Beach Blast (held every September with the Children’s Home Society), the Uptowne Holiday Stroll (first Saturday in December), and the Uptowne Market (held in the spring/summer months), all of which are annual events.
