North Carolina Whirligig Festival
The annual North Carolina Whirligig Festival started as a way to celebrate what was unique to Wilson, NC ‑ the innovative and whimsical folk art whirligigs created by Vollis Simpson. At the heart of the festival is a park containing 30 of the giant metal structures that spin in the wind. The festival includes home‑made arts and crafts, food vendors, non‑profit agencies and sponsors. Entertainment is provided on several stages with live music, a free kids zone, a kids performance stage, strolling artists and art demonstrations.
