2015 N.C. State Fair Theme Announcement: Nothing Could Be Finer

This year’s theme, “Nothing Could Be Finer,” is the foundation of our mission. The fair is all about seeking out and showcasing the finest of North Carolina. Whether that be in a horse show, livestock show, culinary, handicraft or art competition, or with our new “Homegrown North Carolina” concert series in Dorton Arena, we are proud of the talented people of our great state. The State Fair is a way to celebrate everything that is uniquely North Carolina.

So, mark your calendars now, and join us October 15-25, 2015, for "Nothing Could Be Finer!" Tickets go on sale August 3!
