Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services and is consistently ranked among the top 25 fairs in North America.

In 1853, the State Agricultural Society held the first State Fair; it was four days long and the largest attendance day had 4,000 fair-goers. Today, the State Fair has become a traditional fall-time event that aims to educate all North Carolinian’s about the importance of agriculture to our heritage and our economy. The Fair offers the agricultural community a chance to showcase its crops, livestock and new technology.
