COVID-19 Facility Update

Following the Executive Order from Governor Cooper and the recommendations of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, the North Carolina State Fairgrounds will not be hosting events at this time, to reduce the risk of person-to-person transmission of COVID-19.

The safety of our guests is always our highest priority here at the Fairgrounds, and we believe following these recommendations 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. We will announce any new updates on our website and through social media.

Fair Fun

As we alter our lives in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we'll be releasing at least one category from our competitions or a fun activity per week to get a jumpstart on fall!
