When the Caldwell Arts Council held its first Sculpture Celebration in 1985, few could have imagined that it would continue today.​​

Held annually on the Saturday after Labor Day at the Broyhill Walking Park in Lenoir, NC, the nationally recognized event draws sculptors, mostly who live east of the Mississippi, in competition for cash awards and potential sales. The event is free to the public and opens to thousands of people who come to take in the beautiful grounds studded with sculpture.

The 2021 event will include live music, on-site food trucks, and a children's art area,
