Well where i am in NC we have the Azalea Festival.  Back where I was raised (small town in MD) we had a peach festival and in the next town over we had Colorfest.  Colorfest is in fall for the changing of the leaves.  It is so big we have people across the country come to that festival.

I've been to the Blueberry Festival in Burgaw and Peak Fest in Apex. Both fun. There's also a Blue Crab Festival right across the border in SC in/on the Little Pee Dee River I think.

We (Newton) have the "Old Soldiers Reunion" in August and maybe oneor two little things at other times. It's a week long thing with live concerts on the town square, classic car show, parade, sidewalk sales, beauty pageant, etc. 

Hickory Oktoberfest in October and I think they have live concerts beginning June.
