Why choose the State Fairgrounds?

We can accommodate any size show, conference or exhibit. The North Carolina State Fairgrounds consists of 344 acres of land and more than 400,000 total square feet of building space. Because of the roomy facilities, great location, excellent FREE event parking and award winning landscape, the fairgrounds is a popular rental spot.


Easy access from all major highways. The N.C. State Fairgrounds is easily accessible from the I-440 Beltline, Interstate 40 and 540, as well as from Blue Ridge Road, N.C. Highway 54 (Hillsborough Street) and now Edwards Mill Road (see directions below). Free parking is available on State Fair and Carter-Finley Football Stadium property for events scheduled at the Fairgrounds, except for recreational vehicles that park between the hours of midnight and 8:00 a.m.

Our prices are reasonable. In addition to ample free parking and a great location, building rental prices at the fairgrounds are reasonably priced. At the N.C. State Fairgrounds you can schedule a meeting, conference or exhibit that is easily accessible without having to spend most of your budget on the facility rental.
