The annual North Carolina State Fair has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. It was originally scheduled for October 15-25.
"To offer anything less than what fairgoers have come to know and love would be a disservice to our community and to us. There is no halfway when producing a fair. The people, the lights, the rides, the smells, the music, all of that contributes to an atmosphere that can only be felt during a fair,” Fair Manager Kent Yelverton said.
Good news - you can still purchase your favorite state fair foods at a drive-thru!
