Coming to the Hickory Hops festival from out of town? Why not take the opportunity to explore our evolving city. Formerly known as a manufacturing hub- and still home to excellent furniture marts- Hickory is growing into a creative center full of independant spirit.
There are several hotels located within a few miles of the festival site. Hickory Hops does not endorse any particular accommodation option. For hotel options, and information about Hickory in general, contact the Visitors Bureau at 1-800-322-1335 or visit www.hickorymetro.com
Hickory Hops is located at the heart of Downtown Hickory near many restaurants, banks, services, and retail shops. One of the best ways to learn about the area is to visit the Downtown Development Association's official website, www.downtownhickory.com.
