Family Game Night

Do you love games? Free events? Free pizza and popcorn? Then this is a night for you! Join the High Point Museum Friday, February 21 for our fourth annual Family Game Night. This free event is open to people of all ages and lasts from 5 to 7 p.m.

Play all different types of games including two board games created about our own city - “The Challenge High Point” and “Executive Market Game.” The Challenge High Point game is from the 1980s. It is a Monopoly style game where players buy and sell property to gain wealth. It features local businesses and attractions. The Executive Market Game was made by employees of Drexel Heritage Distinctive Home Furnishings in the 1960s about the High Point Furniture Market.
This fun evening will be full of all sorts of games featuring classic card and board games along with scavenger hunts and Pokémon Go. Lots of activities for this event including photo booth, music and prizes. Uncle Maddio’s Pizza is donating pizza and BabyCakes Gourmet is donating mini-cupcakes for this event.

Lunch and Jazz - Black, Brown & Beige
The High Point Public Library and High Point Museum in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center will be streaming Jazz concerts from the Lincoln Center for the public's listening pleasure. The audience is encouraged to bring their own lunch as lunch will not be provided. Come listen, network, collaborate, and celebrate.
Two of music’s most legendary names are the bandleaders Duke Ellington and Count Basie. In this show, we highlight some of their most extraordinary repertoire. We delve into the beloved swinging classics of Count Basie’s bands, and then move into Duke Ellington’s magnum opus: Black, Brown, and Beige, a concert work that challenged America’s notions of what Jazz composition could be and what it could represent.
