North Carolina State Fair
The North Carolina State Fair is a massive celebration of Southern culture and family fun. The fair has remained true to its agricultural roots, with exhibitions that promote the preservation of farmland and natural resources, allow fairgoers to try their hand at picking peanuts or milking cows, and enable visitors to view and learn more about the cattle, sheep, pigs and other animals raised on North Carolina farms. But the fair has also evolved to become a spectacular festival with amusement park rides and games, a demolition derby, top musical performers and much more.
Venue: State Fairgrounds, 1025 Blue Ridge Rd
