Mountain State Fair

WNC Agricultural Center
Fletcher, NC

The Mountain State Fair celebrates the heritage of the Blue Ridge Mountains, including agriculture, music, crafts, art, food, entertainment, display of livestock, and competitions.

The focal point of the Fair is the Carnival Midway, featuring over 40 rides and numerous games for all ages. The staple of the Fair is the many competitions that offer North Carolina’s best in livestock, creative arts, farm products, and school projects.  Old timey demonstrations are given, ranging from molasses making, blacksmithing, pottery, and needlework to basket weaving. Agriculture runs deep at the Fair during the 10 day run, with more than 4,000 animals, including dairy and beef cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, chickens, rabbits, and llamas. Music fills the air at the Fair with sounds of Appalachia as bands perform nightly on the Heritage Stage. The entertainment lineup includes music, acrobatics, magic shows, and animal acts just to name a few. The Mountain State Fair is the best source for family entertainment.
