Rowan Creek Week Finale Events
Creek Week is a week-long celebration of local waters throughout North Carolina. This year, Rowan Creek Week will be September 17th-24th. In conjunction with multiple organizations and local municipal departments, Creek Week offers recreational, educational, and volunteer opportunities to allow everyone to enjoy and contribute to healthy waters in our area.

Salisbury Avenue, Spencer, NC 28159) for a reception and presentations on the Town’s “Big Green Deal” happening in northern Rowan County’s Big Green Nation – Spencer’s grand vision for recreational and green spaces to connect the Yadkin River to Spencer and surrounding communities. Presentations will highlight the Town’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan and projects such as the Yadkin River Park Trailhead, Park Plaza Park, Fred and Alice Stanback Educational Forest expansion, 8th Street Ballpark renovations, and future town greenway and bikeway plans.
