Home of MerleFest

During the last weekend in April, Wilkes County rings with the sound of bluegrass, country, Celtic and Cajun music at the annual MerleFest celebration. This 4-day North Carolina mountain vacation event for the entire family includes national headliners, live music and workshops from morning 'til late night. Come immerse yourself in this Americana Music Celebration, and enjoy the North Carolina hospitality of Wilkes County.

Wilkes County joins a long segment of the Blue Ridge Parkway on the north. This county ranges from gently rolling open land to steep escarpments near the Blue Ridge Parkway, with plenty of 3,000+ foot elevations. Summer mornings are pleasantly cool and winters not quite as harsh as those at higher elevations.

For more information on this mountain county, go to the Wilkes County Chamber of Commerce.
