2020 North Carolina State Fair canceled due to pandemic

This year’s North Carolina State Fair has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, North Carolina Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler announced Wednesday morning.

The State Fair, which was scheduled to run from Oct. 15-25, is one of the most highly-anticipated events in the state every year – but COVID-19 ended up shutting it down. North Carolina has seen more than 116,000 cases and over 1,800 people have died from the virus.

The last time the North Carolina State Fair was canceled was in 1945.
