Celebrate the 150th State Fair with food, fun and prizes

There are only 12 days left until the doors open on the 150th N.C. State Fair. The fair opens Thursday, Oct. 12, and we plan to kick off the celebration with a special admission price, commemorative buttons, food specials and prizes!

Here are the deals and prizes to watch for on opening day:

  • Admission on kickoff day is $1.50! Gates open at 3 p.m. on Oct. 12. The admission price is good for one day only, so don’t miss the opportunity to have bragging rights on getting the lowest price of the season.
  • The first 15,000 people through the gates will receive a commemorative button as part of “WRAL Button Bonanza.” Think of this button as your VIP pass to fun and special prizes.
  • If you’re one of the lucky people to grab a commemorative button, you will be eligible to win big this year. Be on the lookout because each hour, State Fair staff will hand out 150 free ride passes and other prizes.
  • The State Fair offers something for everyone, and if you’re looking forward to sampling the newest culinary creations, this deal is for you. Numerous food vendors are helping us celebrate by offering items for $1.50 on kickoff day.

Nothing could be finer than kicking off the 150th N.C. State Fair in style! Join us Oct. 12-22 as we celebrate the best North Carolina has to offer.

About Fair Flyer

Nicole Roach, here (aka Fair Flyer). The fall is an exciting time of year. I always look forward to the cool crisp evenings, hot cider, the changing leaves, and of course, the State Fair. If you’re looking for me at the fair, you’ll probably find me in line for the State Fair Flyer. To me, there’s nothing better than sitting in a car high above the midway and watching the magic unfold below.
