Celebrate the Holidays in JoCo.

    Live at The Rudy Christmas Show in Selma, NC.
    As we all hope to visit family and friends for the holidays, we invite you to make JoCo part of your plans. Stop on your I-95 or I-40 road trip as you traverse NC; take one of our exits and travel a food trail to find a unique and delicious local spot for lunch or dinner... or even a sweet treat!

    Visit for the whole day and discover one of our many hidden gems, like the reopened and remodeled Ava Gardner Museum. If you still need to complete your Christmas list, shop for deals at Carolina Premium Outlets or many unique shops in our charming downtown stores. 

    Most every weekend, you will find holiday festivals and events like concerts, light shows and the very popular Live@ The Rudy Christmas Show and much more. Visit our calendar of events page for planning a visit around holiday events!

    Thinking of making an entire weekend out of it? Be sure to look into our hotel packages! Maybe alternative lodging is more your style, or you love camping... JoCo has that too!
