It’s no exaggeration to say there’s always something to do in Sanford and Lee County!
Entertainment can take on lots of forms, including live music, performances and arts activities with our many local organizations, as well as outdoor fun of all kinds, such as camping, fishing and hiking at San-Lee Park, Jordan Lake State Recreation Area, Raven Rock State Park and many other local destinations.
Looking for enjoyable community-wide celebrations? We have several taking place throughout the year, including our signature spring event, the Sanford Arts & Vine Festival, as well as other notable festivities such as Broadway Our Way and the Lee Regional Fair. Summer brings the weekly Thursday afternoon music & more Function At The Junction in downtown Sanford. We also enjoy family-friendly holiday celebrations at Easter, July 4, Halloween and Christmas.
There are plenty of places and programs for kids to enjoy all year long. Depot Park, Kiwanis Family Park and the O.T. Sloan Pool are three other popular gathering places where there’s always fun to be had. And of course, it wouldn’t North Carolina, if we didn’t have several great golf courses to experience.
We also have museums, several buildings on the National Historic Registry, and the Carolina Artists’ Colony in downtown Sanford, as well as dozens of quaint shops and enjoyable dining experiences all waiting to be enjoyed.
