Benson Mule Days Festival – Benson, NC – September 21st-24th, 2023
This multi-day September event in Benson, NC is part rodeo, part fair, and all fun. Once a year in Benson, NC, mules are elevated to Derby-Hollywood status. Mules take the stage and are celebrated in a four-day festival affectionately known as “Mule Days.” The tradition began in 1949 when Nowell Smith, Jr. and the McLamb Brothers had the idea for a festival that would both celebrate the farmer and foster community spirit by incorporating the town’s main draft animal – the mule.
Benson Christmas In the Grove – November 2023
Mules are mostly infamous creatures. They’ll never claim the roses of the Kentucky Derby® or share the Hollywood limelight as Shrek’s® best friend. They’re not horses; they’re not donkeys. Instead, they simply fall somewhere in between, a mixture of the two.
Dunn Cotton Festival – November 4th, 2023
Join us for Two concert stages featuring North Tower Band, The Castaways, Gaylon Pope and Sweetwater, and Fatmouth. Over a 150 talented artisans, commercial, and delicious food vendors. A Kiddie Land area, Chalk Fest, and the Dunn Shriner’s car show.
Coats Farmers’ Day – Coats, NC – October 14th, 2023
Perhaps the oldest farmers’ day in the region, the Annual Coats Farmers’ Day is held every fall in the heart of the town, a tradition for more than 100 years! While the attractions have changed since the early days—events used to consist of competitions in field crops, garden products, and canning—the Annual Coats Farmers’ Day now includes a golf tournament, a tractor show, live music, a kids’ park, assorted competitions and races, an antique-car show, military displays, a pig cook-off, judged crafts and baked goods, and street dance.
Stuarts Greenhouse Day – October 28th, 2023
