Cumberland County – Hosting American Competitions since 1775.
Sports and athletics are dear to the heart of any hometown. In Cumberland County, it’s almost a more elevated kind of experience. Our love of country and the American spirit means we take a little bit extra joy in a hard-fought competition. Our wide variety of venues provide an amazing array of opportunities for athletes, tournament organizers, and even dedicated spectators. From soccer to basketball, skeet shooting to fishing, racquetball to wrestling, we have the facilities, accommodations, community amenities and support system to ensure your event goes off without a hitch.
Each Sunday Shady Acres Rodeo, a self-sustaining farm, hosts a bull-riding event. Bring your friends and family out to enjoy watching some bull riding (or take your own turn on a bull). Event times fluctuate from week to week. Call ahead or refer to Facebook to confirm hours, or to inquire about the rules and terms of participation.
Gather together with fellow walkers/runners this Memorial Day to reflect and honor the service and sacrifice of our fallen service members. This annual walk/run starts off with a circle of remembrance. Then participants head out on the Cape Fear River Trail, which is lined with pictures of veterans who have lost their lives at war. Refer to event Facebook page for updates on this special event.
