Welcome to Rolesville, a hidden gem in the northeastern corner of Wake County that is home to more than 4,000 full-time residents. This quiet area exudes a peaceful, small-town atmosphere, where visitors encounter a diverse community with a strong sense of pride and a warm, welcoming spirit. As the second oldest town in Wake County, Rolesville’s roots run deep. Established in 1837, the area has held fast to its engaging Southern charm.
Enjoy the outdoor activities available at Main Street Park in the middle of downtown Rolesville, complete with four rentable shelters, a gazebo, open play field, playground and more than a mile of greenway trails. Take a hike along Mill Bridge Nature Park, home to a 200-seat amphitheater and trails that connect with the Wake Forest Parks and Recreation greenways. You can also take a walk, or should we say dive, on the wild side and explore Fantasy Lake Scuba Park, an astounding 50-acre, one-billion-gallon stone quarry, which has become a local mecca for scuba divers.
After you’ve worked up an appetite, discover the family-owned and operated eateries such as Off The Hook Seafood Restaurant, Rosalini's Pizza & Subs and Los Tres Magueyes for a variety of tempting culinary offerings. Swing by the Rolesville Diner at breakfast or lunchtime for some "home-style country cookin’" (biscuits with gravy, please!).
Seasonal fun abounds in Rolesville, with hometown favorites like the Rolesville 4th of July Festival, the Town of Rolesville Movie Night series throughout the summer and the town Christmas Parade held on the first Sun. in Dec. Get an early start on your holiday shopping at the Rolesville Fall Funfest in Nov. featuring a multitude of crafts and arts vendors, or uncover treasures at the Old Town Market Shops. Rolesville is a pleasure to rediscover all year long.
