Goldsboro Wayne County Community Events Calendar

Greetings visitors and residents,

Under the guidance of Governor Roy Cooper’s Phase 3 reopening plan, Goldsboro-Wayne County is reopening its doors to welcome back customers and guests to its businesses, attractions, and events. As you will see below, our events calendar is back online to encourage you to enjoy Goldsboro-Wayne County once again starting this summer. However excited we are to socialize with you again over a plate of legendary BBQ, we are just as eager to continue practicing social distancing and all recommended state and national health measures. Your protection is our priority. To understand what you can do, where you can eat and stay overnight, as well as the latest information regarding Covid-19 in the state of NC, check out these links and calendar below:
