Wilkes County is known for MerleFest
, a diverse roots-music festival dedicated to the memory of Merle Watson. Wilkes County also offers a wide variety of activities for everyone, from adrenaline-pumping mountain biking, to tubbing down the Yadkin River, or wine tasting
at a local vineyard.
We'll take your breath away...or let you catch it. An action packed sports weekend or a relaxed respite? You'll find both in Wilkes County.
Enjoy your virtual visit, and we hope that you will come see us soon.
