In 2011 Hoke County Celebrated 100 years with the Hoke 100 Centennial Celebration Carnival. This event was a huge success and residents from all over Hoke County said, "please continue this event for the future as Hoke County has no county fair with rides and events similar to the N.C. State Fair". In 2012 we had a great festival and BBQ competition. Last year (2013) we continued this tradition with the Hoke Fest BBQ Festival and Carnival in which over 8,000 people attended the five day festival.
In 2014 we are going to build on last year’s event and also add a vendor area, arts and crafts area, entertainment stage and best of all, good ole NC BBQ and RIBS !!
