Fall Festivities

Cool weather, autumn harvests, and colorful leaves: In North Carolina, there are plenty of reasons — and opportunities — to celebrate this time of year.

Points of Pride

North Carolina’s state symbols make up a one-of-a-kind collection that tells our story. They include our native plants, the art we create, the crops we grow, and so much more.

Fruits of Our Labor

From apples in the mountains to peaches in the Sandhills to blueberries on the Coastal Plain, there’s a bounty of North Carolina-grown fruit to enjoy.

Fried & True

North Carolina’s landmark coastal restaurants don’t just serve good food. They also help us continue cherished traditions.

Outdoor Living

When we pitch a tent on top of our mountains, in our forests, or on our beaches, we discover the natural beauty that has transfixed adventurers for centuries.

Praise for Pollinators

Small wings can make a big difference! Birds, butterflies, beetles, and bees carry pollen from plant to plant, populating our state with colorful flowers and fruit trees.

Luck of the Tar Heel

In a month when everyone’s looking for four-leaf clovers and leprechauns, we’re paying tribute to North Carolinians who have made historic discoveries and found good fortune — including gold — all on their own.

Musicians Who Move Us

The tunes created by these talented North Carolinians fill our homes and hearts all year. During Black History Month, especially, we love to celebrate their legacies.
