Mark your calendar for the last week of April to attend Merlfest, the premier Americana Music Celebration.  This music extravaganza features contiinuous bluegrass from 12 stages over four days.  With attendance close to 80,000 from 48 states and 8 foreign countries, it's a musical tribute you won't want to miss.

 Kerr Scott Dam & Reservoir  located just minutes from Wilkesboro offers overnight camping, hiking/biking trails, picnic shelters, boat ramps, a marina, and some of the best fishing around.

Stone Mountain State Park is a 14,000+ acre natural paradise at the foot of the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The centerpiece of the park is a bald 600 foot granite dome surrounded by some of the states best trout waters.  Overnight camping, hiking, horseback riding trails, and fishing make this park a must-see.
