Deep Fried Triangle Tweetup: Bring your game face

Hopefully, you’ve been making your fair plans for months. If not, start planning now because this is your official invitation to the Deep Fried Triangle Tweetup at the N.C. State Fair Thursday, Oct. 13.

The Deep Fried Tweetup, a collaboration with our good friends at Triangle Tweetup, is a chance for all of our social media friends to come together for an exclusive event just for our favorite followers. We’ll have samples of the latest deep-fried creation, a chance to interact with some of our amazing fair performers and exhibitors, and of course a sweet scavenger hunt of the fairgrounds.

Speaking of the scavenger hunt, this year we’ve partnered with SCVNGR to bring you a one-of-a-kind trek around the fair. And guess what, it’s a team event. You’ll get to explore the fairgrounds with your team and earn points for challenges along the way. The team with the most points will be crowned Deep Fried Champions, earn some special prizes as well as some well-deserved bragging rights.

So, start recruiting your team today. A team can consist of 3-5 people. They can be co-workers, family, friends or even tweeps you’ve never met IRL. Because really, is there a better way to get to know someone than enjoying a night at the State Fair?

If you’re not big on commitments, no worries. You can form a team at the Tweetup. Of course, if you wait until then, you might miss out on the social media smack talk.

Either way, be sure to mark your social calendars for Thursday, Oct. 13, and pick up your ticket today. Tickets are just $5, and includes admission to the fair and the Tweetup. Just follow this link to pick up your discounted admission ticket through eTix. Be sure to check back here for more details as we get closer to the event.

Let the smack talk begin! Follow the Deep Fried Smack Talk at #DFSmackTalk.

About Bearded Lady

Paul Jones blogged for the 2009-2012 N.C. State Fairs. Here's his bio from 2009: Paul Jones, here (a.k.a. Bearded Lady). I love the N.C. State Fair. I love the rides, I love the food, but my favorite part of the Fair is the displays of the unusual. The two-headed snake, the world’s smallest woman, the world’s tallest horse and the list goes on. Originally from South Carolina, I hope that I can bring a different perspective to this blog as I shed light on some of the ordinary, yet extraordinary, aspects of this year’s Fair.


  1. We are going to have teams of 3-5 this year but you can still only buy 2 tickets. I wish we could buy them for our team members. It would make it easier then every one buying their own. Scvngr sounds pretty cool though. Looking forward to this year’s scavenger hunt.

  2. So excited to bring another Deep fried Triangle tweetup to the NC State Fair!! Last year was a lot of fun with my kids doing the QR code scavenger hunt before the tweetup. I’m looking forward to this year’s SCVNGR hunt. Stay tuned for our team hashtag!

  3. This will be my first deep fried tweetup.Iam so excited..

  4. Love to take part. We have a new item a available only at Nc state fair…deep fried candy apples! How do we get on board to provide samples on Thursday ?
