In Rowan County, we’re always looking for ways to give our visitors an original experience. Even better than that, we search for ways to partner with our local attractions and events to provide special offers to our visitors, like our Overnight Stay & Play Packages.


What’s an Overnight Stay & Play Package?

Our Overnight Stay & Play Packages are partnerships with our local attractions and events that reward our visitors with complimentary event tickets when they book their stay in Rowan County lodging during specific events. Packages range from family events like Day Out with Thomas and the Polar Express, to adult specific events like wine and beer crawls through Downtown Salisbury, and everything in between.


How do you participate?

  1. Check our website for available Overnight Stay & Play Package offers and package deadlines.

  2. Book your stay directly though one of our participating Rowan County lodging properties, including hotels, AirBnbs, b&bs or camping cabins (camp site rentals not included).

  3. Contact Rowan County Tourism to reserve your package, and have your hotel confirmation number, reservation name and contact information handy.

  4. Once we confirm your booking with the lodging property, tickets will be issued and will be at your lodging property when you check in.


What else do I need to know?

Available packages are always listed on the special offers section of our website and will provide information for specific packages. Individual Stay & Play Package terms and conditions apply. Please visit our special offers page for more information about current packages and guidelines.
