On Oct. 6, the NC State Fair announced its COVID-19 protocols. The State Fair will take place at the fairgrounds from Oct. 14-24. This is the first state fair since 2019, with the 2020 fair being canceled due to the pandemic.


Vaccinations are not required to attend the State Fair, but they are encouraged. There will also not be an enforced mask mandate at the event. Fair organizers hope that everybody attending will be considerate of others and do their part to make the event safe and fun for everyone by getting vaccinated, wearing a face covering, social distancing, washing hands and staying home if they have any symptoms of COVID-19. Fair organizers also recommend getting tested for COVID-19 three days after attending the Fair. For more information about health and safety precautions at the State Fair, use this link.
