On Saturday, 06/10, Cary will be running its annual Pimento Cheese Festival in Downtown Cary.

This is a fun event for all ages, with live music, a cheese sculpting contest, and more. The event will run 11am to 4pm.

Bike Plan Survey

The town is running a survey to help develop safer biking infrastructure. If you would like to get involved with this important issue, please take the quick survey linked above. There is also an interactive map that you can fill out and show where you like to bike, where you would like to bike if the area had safer bike infrastructure, and where you feel unsafe biking. This will be very helpful for the Cary Bike and Micromobility Plan, and even if you aren’t an avid cyclist, your response is still important!

Great Trail Day at the American Tobacco Trail

You can park at 2575 New Hope Church Road (the New Hope Church Road Trailhead) where there will be informational booths, a food truck, and inflatables for the kids.
