Come out May 20 and help us honor 2017 RoseFest Lifetime Achievement Award winner Luther Ledford

EVENT INFO

On the 3rd Saturday in May, North Carolinians and visitors from all over the region, will gather together in Pink Hill, NC (Lenoir County) for the 2017 RoseFest in Pink Hill!

With such amazing offerings in the area – Chef & the Farmer, Mother Earth Brewing, the Down East Wood Ducks class-A baseball, Duplin Winery, and even the World’s Largest Frying Pan – history, culture, and now, unconventional living options and more.

Proceeds from the RoseFest benefit the Pink Hill Area Preservation and Development, the Pink Hill Wellness Center, the Christian Chapel church, Melvin Jones Gymnasium in Pink Hill, and others!

TRAVEL

Our goal in Pink Hill is to create a pedestrian community in our downtown region that has walkable sidewalks and is bike friendly. The RoseFest is being held in our downtown area, which is most readily accessible by NC-11. Parking will be available both at the RoseFest location and around it. If you are coming to the RoseFest from another city or state, you can take the Amtrak/Bus route into several cities, a bus directly into Kinston (the neighboring city), or an airplane into either Raleigh-Durham International Airport, Wilmington International Airport, or Albert J. Ellis Airport.
