There is the annual Gears and Guitars festival each summer which is worth checking out. It's held downtown right behind the Wake Forest Innovation Center. If you really want a taste of the local barbeque, take the short (30 min) drive to Lexington and check out either Speedy's or Lexington BBQ. You won't see much snow, but the once or twice it does, the whole town shuts down. It's not a big deal though because the sun will come out and it will all be gone in a day or two.
