We are so excited to be hosting the Union County Heritage Festival in person at the Union County Agriculture Center this year. The theme this year is “Thriving with Nature.”  There will be a variety of music, food trucks,  exhibitors,  a vendor fair, plants for sale, educational and creative activities for kids, storytime in the garden, free talks, arts and crafts demonstrations, fabulous raffle prizes, cooking demonstrations, and even more!

The Heritage Festival is free, thanks to our sponsors, Wingate University, Union Power, Agri Supply, Union County Parks & Recreation, South Piedmont Community College, EP Productions, Union County Sheriff Department, and others too numerous to mention. To see a complete list of our sponsors and vendors visit the Heritage Festival website.

If you want to see farm animals and kids in action, Union County 4-H will be hosting the 4-H Expo at the Jessie Helms Special Events Center adjacent to the Agriculture Center at the same time as the Heritage Festival. They will have cows, goats, and sheep, 4-H Club booths, creative arts competition, and safety town. 

Come out and join us for this free, fun family event!
