COVID-19 Facility Update

Following the Executive Order from Governor Cooper and the recommendations of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, at this time, limited events will be taking place at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. Events held will comply with all requirements in the Executive Order and NCDHHS Guidance to reduce the risk of person-to-person transmission of COVID-19.


The safety of our guests is always our highest priority at the Fairgrounds, and we believe following these requirements and guidelines is in the best interest of our community.


We will continue to closely monitor the course of COVID-19 and will resume normal operations as soon as possible. Updates will be announced on our website and through social media.
