Welcome to Goldsboro and Wayne County

Where we are as proud of our pickles as we are our planes! And, we’re pretty partial to pork as well!

Home of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, Mt. Olive Pickle Company and famous for the best barbeque in Eastern North Carolina, we are a destination with rich cultural and heritage roots, which captivates visitors and residents alike.

Enjoy an afternoon paddling the Neuse River or spend an action-packed day at an outdoor recreational facility. Explore our parks and enjoy a festival or outdoor concert. Pause in awe as F-15 E Strike Eagle jets soar across the sky.

Goldsboro Wayne County has built its future by celebrating its past.

Come and experience our unique legacy!
