Entertainment

Concerts in Dorton Arena

Fireworks

A favorite tradition of the fair for generations of families is to stay at the fair until the fireworks go off. Fireworks are shot at 9:45 p.m. from a location across Trinity Road.

In addition, the fireworks signal the close of buildings and the gate ticket booths.

Folk Festival

Talented dancers and musicians from across North Carolina compete for the coveted Bascom Lamar Lunsford Trophy, which is awarded to the individual or group that best exemplifies North Carolina’s musical heritage. This 10-day competition features performances ranging from old-time bluegrass music to high-energy clogging and traditional square dancing.

Many groups take traditional dances and mix them with contemporary costumes and music to appeal to younger generations. Judging is based on audience appeal, authenticity, appearance, enthusiasm and competency.

Free Entertainment

There's guaranteed to be a bumper crop of fun with more than 20 performers from our lineup of talented grounds entertainment. You can see BMX stunt bikers flying through the air, witness the side-splitting powers of a comedy superhero and even see the super-fast speed of racing swine. They’re just a few of the free entertainment options, which also includes roaming acts and daily concerts on the Kitchen Craft Waterfall Stage, Bluegrass stage and Heritage Village Church Stage.
