Mayfest is one of the longest running festivals in North Carolina, drawing visitors from across the region for a full day of springtime family fun. There will be live music from Rutherford County Line and the Houston Bernard Band, a car, truck and bike show, and a variety of artisans and crafters showcasing their one-of-a-kind items. Children will have a ball in the Kids Playland featuring inflatables, rock climbing walls, obstacle courses, face painting and the Pinewood Derby Race. Local dancers, gymnasts and cheerleaders will perform, and friendly fur babies will take the spotlight during the 4 Paws Kingdom Pet Contest. No festival is complete without fabulous food vendors. Indulge in delicious barbecue, turkey legs, roasted corn, stir-fry, funnel cakes, homemade ice cream and much more.
