Welcome to Wilkes

Wilkes Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to our wonderful community located in the foothills of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Wilkes is a land with a legacy of hardworking people who created this mountain-gateway a home abundant with rich resources. The community is one that is thriving and continually growing, while maintaining its high environmental standards and pristine beauty.       

Lying along the eastern slope of the mountain range, Wilkes County is conveniently located and easily accessible to major interstates leading to North Carolina’s larger cities – Charlotte, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem.  People move here for a variety of reasons, but mostly because it is an excellent place to live, do business, and raise a family.  Many are seeking a hospitable place that blends charming hometowns and warm, friendly neighbors.


In Wilkes, people find added dimensions of life not commonly seen in other communities of its size such as culture, arts, entertainment, festivals and a host of diversions that make life interesting. Also, one can find a high quality educational system in which their children may learn and grow.

Wilkes County is to many people a variety of things, but to all residents, Wilkes is a nice place to call home, raise a family or retire. 

Please call or email the Chamber for any assistance you may need (336)838-8662 or
