Heretiage Festival LogoThe Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Union County partnered with 4-H to host the Heritage Festival and 4-H Expo on September 21, 2019. The Heritage Festival is a free, fun, family-friendly event celebrating the natural, cultural, and historical
heritage of Union County. The festival provides inspiration and education to help citizens attain and sustain a healthy lifestyle, community, and environment.

The Heritage Festival included the Wild Turkey 5K Trail Run & Walk, a vendor fair, live entertainment, kids’ art and science activities, and a raffle with some great prizes donated by local businesses.

Master Gardener℠ volunteers led tours of the teaching gardens, and local experts offered free talks and cooking demonstrations. Willie Earl Wilson, former Horticulture Extension Agent, was a special guest.

The 4-H Expo showcased a culmination of 4-H projects—ranging from horses, livestock, visual arts, and kitchen science, to safety and talent—and included Safety Town activities.

The day brought beautiful fall weather with more than 80 people participating in the Wild Turkey 5K Trail Run & Walk and more than 1,600 people visiting the Heritage Festival and 4-H Expo, making the event a great success! Check your local N.C. Cooperative Extension Center for upcoming events and programs.
