Visit Golsdboro (soon)

While our mantra has always been to “Visit Goldsboro”, the escalation of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation has caused us to press the pause button, encourage folks to reduce their social interactions, and invite you to visit Goldsboro soon. The situation changes every day, but our priority remains the same to put the health and safety of our visitors and residents first. Like many destinations across the world, our lodging facilities, attractions, venues, and event organizers are taking a direct impact due to the efforts to control the spread of the virus. Although it is tough to watch our tourism partners struggle with cancellations, reduced hours, and having to furlough and even layoff positions, we write to remind our visitors and residents that Goldsboro-Wayne County is no stranger to hard times. In the face of natural disasters and economic uncertainty, we have always been a resilient destination ready to come together. For now, we must stay strong physically and mentally by following the guidance set by the Center for Disease Control, and when the time comes, we’ll be healthy and ready to come together again. 

As many of you have heard, the Center for Disease Control has recommended that for the next eight weeks, organizers should cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. Below is a list of major events that have cancelled or postponed until further notice. 

3/28 Fremont Daffodil Festival- cancelled

4/4 Pig in the Park- postponed, new date coming soon

4/18 Greater Goldsboro Road Run- postponed, new date coming soon

4/25 N.C. Pickle Festival- cancelled

5/2 Three Eagles Beer & Wine Festival- cancelled

The full event listing on our site is temporarily down until further notice, but contains helpful links and resources for our residents and visitors. 

Finally, just as important as it is to stay healthy, it’s important to remain optimistic that it’s a short matter of time before we invite you to visit Goldsboro soon.

Nestled in the heart of eastern NC between Raleigh and the coast, we are a destination with rich culture and heritage. Our heritage has deep military and agricultural roots. And, let’s not forget to mention our legendary BBQ! We sum up ourselves with 4 Ps: pigs, pickles, planes, and poultry!
