Welcome to Our Town

On behalf of the Board of Commissioners and Town Staff I would like to welcome you to the Town of Candor’s website. We are very proud of our Town and so pleased that you chose to visit our site. We hope you find the information about our Town and services helpful. We are always open to comments and suggestions, and if you have any please call the Town Hall at 910-974-4221 or email the town at townofcandor@embarqmail.com.

We welcome you to visit our Town and attend the North Carolina Peach Festival held every year on the third Saturday in July. Our first festival was in 1997 and each year gets better than the one before. The parade starts at 10 a.m. and the festivities take place in the park. Bring your lawn chairs and sit back and enjoy the local live entertainment. There is always lots of local peaches, peach ice cream and peach desserts.

Again, welcome to Candor and thanks for visiting our website. If there is anything that we can do for you or you would like more information about our Town or services, please don’t hesitate to call.
