North Carolina Festivals 2015, 2016

There are Festivals in North Carolina all year round, thanks in part to its cooperative climate. The April Great Grapes and Wine Festival in Cary features twenty wineries, live music, Arts and Crafts, and food tastings. The park setting is casual and relaxed. Patrons bring blankets to enjoy the food and wine picnic style. Just before Memorial Day is Artsplosure in Raleigh, a favorite of North Carolina Events. An artists market with 180 juried artists, live music, a birdhouse building area, and good food for adults, coexist with "Kidsplosure" where children can enjoy their own little part of the festival. One of the best of North Carolina music festivals is the John Coltrane International Jazz and Blues Festival that celebrates the life and music of the famed saxophonist. Held on Labor Day Weekend in High Point, the festival features renowned musicians from all over the world.

Rounding out the year is Christmas Town in McAdenville. Known for its Christmas tree display, billed as the largest in the country, there are sleigh rides, music and, of course, Santa Claus. A forty six foot statue of "Old Man Winter" blows snowflakes into the air around the lake where a colored fountain dances seventy feet in the air.
