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!
We are the proud home to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, one of the best (and oldest!) fighter communities in the world, Mt. Olive Pickle Company, Cliffs of the Neuse State Park, Beak Week Poultry Festival, award-winning historic downtown, NC Pickle Festival and Wings Over Wayne Air Show.
Our county is located on the NC Barbeque Society Historic Trail and the Mountains To Sea Trail, which is the perfect blend. Because after you eat the best BBQ of your life and wash it down with sweet tea or craft beer, you’re going to thank us for having a way to burn it all off!
Live music downtown, farm tours, craft beer, boutique shops, signature restaurants, F-15E Strike Eagles soaring across the sky (no big deal!)…there are so many things to do in Goldsboro-Wayne County! Come and experience a destination like no other. Plan your visit today!
