SATURDAY, MAY 15 | 10 a.m.–2 p.m. | HARRIS LAKE COUNTY PARK
This free, family event focuses on the history and importance of the longleaf pine and its ecosystem. Take a wagon ride to our 60-acre longleaf pine management area, visit educational exhibits to learn about the unique critters in the longleaf forest and discover the role of fire in the life of this iconic tree. The event features live animals, games, crafts and music – there is something for everyone to enjoy!

NEW NEXT YEAR
Test out your skills on our inflatable obstacle course, and let the kids get up-close and personal with some of their favorite vehicles at a mini touch-a-truck exhibit!

This FREE event does not require registration.
If you have questions, please call the park office at 919-387-4342.​


While the 2020 Longleaf Festival has been canceled due to the evolving situation with COVID-19, we hope you will join us on Saturday, May 15, 2021, for the 11th annual event!
