Education Through Celebration

by Jan 17, 2024Events, North Brunswick, Online Exclusives

From February 28 to March 2, North Carolina Rice Festival is hosting four events over four days at four locations.

The organizers of the North Carolina Rice Festival are delighted to rekindle the interest in the intertwining agricultural, cultural and historical forces that made our local area one of the richest rice-growing regions of coastal North Carolina and the Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor — and that make it currently one of the most exciting and interesting places to live.

To that end, they have four upcoming events packed with enjoyment and activities to provide guests with loads of “edu-tainment” befitting the North Carolina Rice Festival motto of Education Through Celebration.
