Time Keeps Ticking, Pitt Fair 2020

September 22nd - 27th 2020

See You at the Fair!

The 101st Annual Pitt County Fair is happening in the most unique circumstances. Our commitment to keeping you as safe as possible is a high as can be. Our midway providers, vendors, staff, and entertainers are all taking every step possible to make the fair enjoyable in a safe as possible environment.

As we all begin to come out of our homes and attempt to return to normality, the role of a community based agricultural fair has never been more important.

It is our responsibility to be a focal point for community togetherness, to honor heroes past and present, and to showcase all that is good in our county, and in our country.

I am proud to stand with my colleagues, and invite you to join us for what will be an amazing fair, as time keeps ticking!

American Legion History

Pitt County American Legion Posts & Information

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.

Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Heroes to Hometowns program connects local Legionnaires with recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing a variety of support activities. The Legion raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families and to provide college scholarship opportunities.

The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.

If you want to join our ranks, you have to have met the following requirements:

If you are currently on active duty, serving the United States honorably, anywhere in the world, or have served honorably during any of the following eligible war eras, we invite you to become a member of The American Legion.

Members from American Legion Post 39 in Greenville, Post 151 in Farmville and Post 289 in Ayden operate and manage the fair, a 501C3 non-profit organization. But that's not all we do in our community - each post has various Americanism programs, Post 39 has a youth baseball team, Boys and Girls State, Oratorical contest, worn or frayed/weathered United States Flag collection and retirement and participates in Greenville's Memorial and Veterans Day ceremonies.

If you live outside Pitt County, and want to join a local Post, visit the Department of North Carolina's web page to find your local post or to learn more about the many programs offered check out our National's web page by clicking on the links.

We would really love to have you join our ranks. Speaking of 'rank' there is NO RANK in our organization! We are all brother and sister Legionaires.
