Welcome to Mount Olive, North Carolina, the place we call home. We are geographically located in the southern end of Wayne County and just a little over an hour from Raleigh, Wilmington, Fayetteville, Greenville and the North Carolina coast. Our community has a population of 4,500 citizens who have big hearts for neighbors, co-workers, family, friends, college students and yes, our visitors. Our small town provides a quality of life that is the envy of many other communities and offers people a chance to slow down from everyday life and relax. We encourage you to join us at events occurring in our community whether it’s in our downtown, parks, college campus or neighborhoods. We especially extend an invitation for you to join us at our annual event, the North Carolina Pickle Festival. The festival occurs each spring and brings in 35,000 visitors to our historic downtown. Our festival is a big dill! Our citizens live by the motto,” Make It Mount Olive,” because we know that our community is a reflection of the people, businesses, educational institutions and quality of life we offer to all who live and visit here. We are a community that is easy to fall in love with and impossible to forget!
