The Tarheel Triple Classic Quarter Horse Show returns to the Hunt Horse Complex June 7-16, giving you 10 full days to visit the show.

See riders compete from across the state in Halter, Western Pleasure, Over Fences, Trail and other categories. Competitions start daily at 8 a.m.

Jewelry lovers will enjoy the Gem & Jewelry Show in the Scott Building Friday to Sunday. Vendors will be on hand to offer a variety of gems, jewelry, crystals, minerals and beads for purchase. Rare minerals, giant sharks teeth and fossils will be on display. The event is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all three days. Admission is free.

On a final note, Raleigh’s July 4th celebration is moving this year. The annual event, hosted by the City of Raleigh, will not be held at the fairgrounds. The State Fairgrounds will be closed. For more information, click on the link below to visit the City of Raleigh website.

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.
