Look No Further For Fun This Fall!

New season, new fun – is how Goldsboro, NC, feels about fall! Whether you’re a foodie, sports lover, theatre fan or like nothing better than a chance to pick the brains of some seriously impressive female leaders – look no further than Goldsboro, NC.

For those foodies amongst us, the food festival, Taste of Wayne County is held on October 12th, in Downtown Goldsboro. The festival is a delicious combination of local food, drink, music and live entertainment – and there’s an all-important beer tent this year too! To sweeten the taste even more, the festival was originally set up to benefit the local community, and raises funds for the United Way of Wayne County. This year’s festival is set to be the tastiest yet as Shrimp and Grits Throwdown are added to the line up (drool!) Head over to unitedwayne.org/taste-of-wayne.com for tickets, $15 per adult.

Once you’ve eaten your fill at the Taste of Wayne County, you’ll be ready for a bit of movement. And what better way than to watch someone else doing all the running about! Goldsboro is hosting the US Quidditch Mid Atlantic Regional Championships on November 9-10th, – the first time US Quidditch has brought an event to North Carolina. Don’t know much about Quidditch?
