When the air begins to cool, things heat up in Granville County. Situated just north of Raleigh and east of Durham, we are a short drive off of Interstate 85 and only 20 minutes from the Virginia state line.

Summer is coming to an end, but there are a number of great events and activities that will make you fall in love with our community this fall, including the North Carolina Hot Sauce Contest in Oxford, the Creedmoor Music Festival, the Masonic Homecoming Festival, and much more. Granville County is home to lots of great shopping, history museums, galleries, lakes, pick-your-own farms, and activities for all ages.
