About Cabarrus

Welcome to Cabarrus County — Where Racing Lives

Cabarrus County is located just 20 minutes north of Charlotte, North Carolina. We are comprised of Kannapolis, Midland, Mount Pleasant, Concord and Harrisburg, N.C., and are known as Where Racing Lives, as we are the birthplace of NASCAR and home to 90 percent of race team shops. But we’re so much more than motorsports. We have history, shopping, and Carolina BBQ — so plan your visit today!

Visit our friendly travel counselors at the Cabarrus County Visitor Information Center.
