North Carolina State Fair
Nothing ushers in fall like the North Carolina State Fair, with visitors from all over North Carolina and beyond, gathering together in Raleigh to celebrate what has become the ultimate family tradition. In 2023, we greeted 926,425 fairgoers over 11 days.
172 years in the making, the fair offers an experience unique to North Carolina for all who attend, and is an unparalleled value with free entertainment, thrilling rides and games, thousands of animals, endless family activities, competitions, vendors and creative deep-fried delights.
