Known as the Town of the Crepe Myrtles, crepe myrtles line many streets throughout town, but especially offer a warm welcome on the main Highways 55 and 210 entrances. We humbly take pride in our quaint downtown area which showcases new welcoming storefronts, the town clock surrounded by memorial plaques, and a recently re-landscaped Depot Square. Angier is the village opportunity and residents can enjoy a ‘walkable’ community. The Town Manager, Mayor , and town employees constantly maintain and provide new ways to enhance our town. Thanks to new sidewalks with attractive lampposts, key areas are safely connected and plans continue to add new sidewalks further improving accessibility and safety for our residents. Angier has one of North Carolina’s top parks which is utilized daily by residents and visitors. The park offers 2 miles plus of walking trails, exercise stations, skate park, playgrounds, picnic pavilions , tennis courts, ball fields, etc., all surrounding a beautiful pond with a lighted fountain. With education in mind, the new elementary school built in 2009 is equipped with state of the art technology, including ‘smart boards’ in every classroom and access to all the latest technology. Other places of interest include Angier’s Gourd Museum, Country Fun Park, Grace Ballroom, Langley Gymnastics Training Center, Barclay Villa, Angier Public Library, Sunni Sky’s Homemade Ice Cream, etc.
Depot Square is the venue for several Chamber hosted events throughout the year. To mention a few, motorcycle enthusiasts come from all over the state to celebrate our annual Bike Fest the first week end in June. The second Saturday in September provides the perfect time for our largest festival, the Crepe Myrtle Celebration. The Crepe Myrtle Celebration brings a vast selection of arts and craft vendors and more to Angier for its 5,000+ crowd. Plans are currently underway for the 39th Crepe Myrtle Celebration, September 8th. October is the time for the annual Crepe Myrtle Golf Tournament, with Christmas on the Square and the annual Christmas Parade ending the year with much fun and excitement.
