Dorton Arena has become the iconic symbol of the N.C. State Fair since it was first used for livestock shows during the 1952 fair. Described in its first year as “one of the most unusual buildings ever constructed by the mind of man,” Dorton continues to be a pretty special place and hosts nightly concerts during the Fair. Check out the video below to see who is performing at Dorton Arena during the 2011 State Fair.
