Hot Sauce Contest – Sept. 10 – Held in September (when the peppers are ripe) in Oxford, the annual North Carolina Hot Sauce Contest is all about the foodie in you.

Throw in an arts & crafts, breweries, kid’s activities, local restaurants AND shops and you have set yourself up for a day full of fun.

Creedmoor Music Festival – Sept. 17 – Take a stroll down Main Street in downtown Creedmoor where fair food aficionados and music lovers converge once a year. Multiple stages offer music from top notch local and regional bands and plenty of activities for the kids!
