May 26 & October 6, 2018
In addition to our Wilkes County Agricultural Fair, the North Wilkesboro Rotary Club promotes a variety of events and also makes the North Wilkesboro Rotary Fairgrounds available for use by other organizations.
Since 2005, Rotarians have played host to lawnmower racing. This oval track racing on the dirt reminds many of the beginnings of stock car racing in Wilkes County and the birth of NASCAR.
Crowds have grown from a few hundred to gatherings of thousands from May through October.
The Wilkes County fairground site is said by many participants to be the premier facility within the racing circuit. Racers and fans agree, it's a wild, noisy, dusty, exciting and totally enjoyable event.
