The NC Potato Festival is a fun-filled, family festival that celebrates one of North Carolina's largest crops: potatoes.

Northeast North Carolina's largest festival returns again - bigger and better than ever. Bring the whole family and stay all three days! Food, arts and crafts, contests, live entertainment, and a Midway full of games and large amusement rides.

Make a weekend of it and come and join us for the Kick-Off Party on Friday night on the corner of Main and Water Streets. Take a spin on a ride on our Midway, get something great to eat, and dance the night away. Return on Saturday and Sunday so you can enjoy the Street Fair lining our downtown streets, the National Potato Peeling Contest, Auto and Motorcycle Show, and other events planned for the festival.
