Save the date: Got to Be NC Festival runs May 20-22

The Got to Be NC Festival returns to the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh May 20-22, highlighting agriculture and agribusiness, the state’s No. 1 industry.

This family-friendly event proudly showcases the best of North Carolina at the Got to Be NC Food, Wine & Beer Homegrown Fare, presented by Lowes Foods. Also, there will be plenty of kids’ activities, lumberjack shows, tractor displays, food, carnival rides and a barbecue cooking contest fundraiser.

If you love antique tractors and farm equipment, you won’t have any problem finding them in all colors and sizes. Restored examples, along with rare tractors are on display each day, with many participating in the daily tractor parade at 1 p.m.

Festival admission is free, with pay-as-you-go rides and food, and $3 admission for the food, wine and beer expo. Gates open Friday from noon to 10 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
