Children are invited to spend some time on the fair’s miniature farm! You'll have an all new experience this year as you explore Holidays on the Farm and traverse four specialty gardens helping your children make the connections between the food they see growing and the food they love to see on their plates! Explore Subs and Spuds, the Holiday Garden, Pizza Patch, Taco Town and collect vegetables in your basket to receive a goody bag of North Carolina product samples!

Presented by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and North Carolina Farm Bureau, this exhibit includes a coloring contest, mini John Deere tractor rides, the authentic sights and sounds of Appalachian mountain music and instruments, plus a photo area where families can take a snapshot from their day on the holiday “farm.”


Located near Gate 1 and Dorton Arena. Open daily from 9 a.m. to 9:45 p.m., except on Thursday, Oct. 11, when the exhibit will open at 4 p.m.
