Fall North Carolina Festivals

Check out this list of North Carolina fall festivals.  I’m favorably impressed with the selection available to those of you visiting from North Carolina.  You really don’t know how lucky you have it.  In other states, you would have far fewer selections available.  And you wouldn’t have nearly the diversity of seafood, beer, and music festival options available to you.  Throw a North Carolina Oktoberfest party into the mix, and you have the potential for a party packed fall!
