Carolina in the Fall Wilkesboro NC 2023


Carolina in the Fall, Wilkesboro, NC, is held on the Old Courthouse Square.  The event is hosted by the internationally know trio The Kruger Brothers who bring in some of the best folk/roots music bands of North Carolina to perform.  In addition to great music, those that attend will be treated to some of the State’s best food as each year food trucks from the region will bring their secret recipes to feed the masses and vie for the Carolina in the Fall Food Truck Championship trophy. Additionally, local vineyards and regional craft beer breweries will be onsite to provide a taste of the region’s best beverages.


  • Come hungry, the food trucks are worth the wait!
  • The Old Courthouse in the square is home of the Wilkes County History Museum and Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame.  Behind the museum you will find the jail where the famed Tom Dooley was kept.  Be sure to check out both.
  • Be sure to visit one of the local moonshine distilleries while in the area.  Call Family Distillery even features local stills and moonshine running cars.
  • Stay at the most newly renovated hotel in Wilkesboro, the Holiday Day Inn Express.  It is centrally located and features the most amenities.
