North Carolina State Fair
October 17 @ 3:00 pm - October 27 @ 11:00 pm
Our Purpose at the N.C. State Fair, is to showcase and promote the state’s agriculture, agribusiness, arts, crafts and culture through the annual agricultural fair.
The Fair offers the agricultural community a venue to showcase its crops, livestock and new technology. The Fair is also an opportunity for the state’s ever-increasing urban population to learn about agriculture through educational and competitive exhibits in the areas of livestock, horticulture, cooking, folk art and much more. More than $600,000 in prize money is awarded each year.
As a self-supporting operation, the Fairgrounds generates revenue by renting out its facilities for events throughout the year and by operating the annual State Fair. The Fairgrounds does not receive appropriated dollars for maintenance, salaries or operations.
We recently completed a long-range master plan for the State Fairgrounds. The plan, which identifies 48 projects to be completed over the next 20 to 30 years or more, includes new exposition space, improved pedestrian safety and traffic flow, an enhanced layout and an RV campground
