The Jones County Heritage Festival is coming to Trenton on September 19th, 2015
Jones County’s Heritage Festival is a celebration of rural agricultural life in southeastern North Carolina. The day begins with a parade down Jones Street. The festival features hands-on heritage skills and activities including looping tobacco, basket making, taxidermy, hand shelling corn, making butter, milking a cow, spinning yarn, quilting, farm animal petting zoo, trapping, and grinding corn. Local talent acts will be featured on the “big stage” so you can sit a spell and enjoy some good food and the show! The day is filled with wholesome family activities, locally prepared foods and fun. The Brock Mill which was originally built in the mid 1700’s is open for tours as well as the mill pond is open for canoeing and kayaking. A vintage car show will feature early models of cars, trucks and tractors. New this year is the “Little Miss Heritage Festival Pageant” for girls 5 to 14 and a free concert during the evening at the American Legion grounds from 5 to 7 pm.
