Of all the events we missed last year, the NC Mountain State Fair is most certainly up at the top. The games, rides, exhibits, and fair food has been our end-of-summer tradition in WNC for the past 27 years.

This may explain why the anticipation of a return to the simple joys of going to the fair is so high. From the moment we even see the lights of the fair from Airport Rd. at the WNC AG Center, we begin to get excited for the hours to come. The excitement builds when we exit the car to the familiar childhood sounds and smells of the NC Mountain State Fair.

And this year you can expect to see some new attractions like the retro motorcycle show aptly called The Wild Wheels Wall of Death! See Extreme Illusions and Escapes, The Comedy Hypnotist, Kenyan Sagari Acrobats, Birds and the Beast, Chainsaw Artist, The Human Cannonball, and more!

See the competitions of General Exhibits such as Art, crafts, quilts, woodworking, horticulture, preserved foods, baked foods,… Flower and Gardening, Cooking, Gospel Singing, Livestock – Cattle, goats, sheep, swine, poultry, rabbit, llama, and display livestock….and CLOGGING!
