March marks the beginning of Spring in North Carolina, and there’s no better place to enjoy all the area has to offer than in Youngsville. Conveniently located just 35 minutes from Downtown Raleigh, the town is also a stone’s throw away from the beach, the mountains and plenty of delicious Carolina grub. Mark your calendar for these fun events planned for this Spring!

  • Jimbo’s Backyard BBQ Competition has become a Youngsville favorite over the years. Taste some of the region’s finest pulled pork, ribs, and burnt ends while enjoying free wine tasting. Admission and parking are also free, so why not head to 1408 Sid Mitchell Rd. in Youngsville? The deliciousness begins at 11 AM on March 9!
  • The Falls Lake State Recreation Area is just a short half hour’s drive from Youngsville and features breathtaking wetlands worth exploring. The park rangers host a number of family-friendly events throughout the year, and the upcoming Blind as a Bat program on March 30th at 11 AM is certain to thrill animal lovers of all ages. The free event will explore common misconceptions about the creatures and give insight into how bats catch their food in the dark cover of night.
  • If you’re in the mood for a party, Youngsville’s Yacht Club Beverage House (118 E Main St) has you covered. Their St. Patrick’s Day festivities begin at 5:00 on March 16, with plenty of green beer, beads, and Guinness Nitro drafts. Chow down on food from Wingski’s food truck – it might not be traditionally Irish, but their chicken is sure to wash down nicely with a pint or two.
  • The annual Wake Forest Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for April 13th this year. Load up the kids and head to E. Carroll Joyner Park (701 Harris Road, Wake Forest) to hunt for more than 10,000 hidden eggs. Easter-themed arts and crafts are also on tap. The fun begins at 10 AM, so set your alarm for an early morning start!
