CLAYTON – The Clayton Chamber of Commerce (COCC) will host the 71st annual Harvest Festival, October 26-29, 2023. The Harvest Festival has roots dating back to 1951 when the Clayton Merchant’s Association, now CCOC, hosted Clayton’s first festival, the Cotton Festival.

Free and open to the public, with over 31,000 in attendance, the award-winning four-day festival incorporates a midway full of carnival rides, car, motorcycle, and tractor shows, Latin American Festival, Squealin’ on the Square BBQ competition, and other community-focused events, vendors, food, music, and fun.

Clayton Harvest Festival is one of Johnston County’s most popular events and continues to draw visitors from across the state and throughout the Southeast.
