The biggest Pigs, Fast Rides, Live Music and a Family Atmosphere come join the fun this September in Caldwell County North Carolina
Some say the Caldwell County Agricultural Fair dates back to the 1800′s as farmers marketplace when farmers would gather in the fall to learn about the newest innovations in farming. Very possible but as far as we know the first officially documented one took place in the year 1946.
If you have never attended an Agricultural fair these are great family friendly usually held in the fall season as a way to celebrate the community and harvest. These are both a lot fun and also quite educational for youth and also adults. North Carolina has a long history of many different Agricultural fairs throughout the state.
The main theme of the Caldwell County Fair is centered around agricultural. There will be lots of animals. There will be livestock competitions and agricultural exhibits. But also a lot of great rides, bright lights and live music. And there’s also plenty of great food and many other interesting things to see, do and learn.
The fair will be held one again in 2013 from Tuesday September 24 through Saturday September 28th.

Yes but its very small. Last year it was $5 for adults and $3.50 for kids under the age of 18. We do expect the admission fee to be the same or very close to the same in 2013.
