Welcome To Wilkesboro


Wilkesboro is located close to I-77 at exit 73B and minutes from the High Country towns of Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk. Wilkesboro will wow you with a newly-revitalized historic downtown, mind-blowing musical talent, stunningly scenic mountain views, heart-pounding outdoor adventures, and Southern small-town charm.

Chill out at MerleFest, the annual four-day roots music festival honoring Doc Watson and his son Merle, or get inspired at FaithFest Kick back in an Adirondack chair and cozy up to a firepit as you enjoy the FREE Concerts in the Commons.  Celebrate Carolina in the Fall at the music festival & food truck championship hosted by the Kruger Brothers.
Sip your way through more than 50 nearby wineries and distilleries, go “tubbing” down the Yadkin River (yes, tubbing, not tubing), shred the 50+ miles of mountain biking trails, or try your luck at one of our three world-class disc golf courses. 
We'll take your breath away...or let you catch it. An action-packed weekend or a relaxed respite? You'll find both in Wilkesboro.
Enjoy your virtual visit, and we hope that you will come see us soon.
