Welcome to another great year at the Pitt County American legion Agricultural Fair. The 2017 Fair is the most important event of the year.
Our fair theme this year, “RACING TO THE FUTURE,” sets the tone for the exciting things
the fair staff has in store for you at the 98th Annual Pitt County American Legion Agricultural Fair. We are excited about our upcoming fair and the return of Powers Great American Midways for your enjoyment and entertainment. Corky and Debbie Powers join us in the excitement of providing one of the most modern midways in the fair business. Their midway consists of 35 thrilling rides, exciting games, and a variety of food and beverage opportunities. Once again, they are bringing some new rides with them. You do not want to miss this fabulous Midway this year. Please join us in welcoming them to Greenville.
We have worked very hard to “build” an exciting fair for you to enjoy. Along with our FREE entertainment, we are offering you a chance to be a ROCK STAR for one night. For the second year, we are introducing our Pitt County FairRock Stars. This is your chance to make your dreams come true by being a STAR on stage at our Karaoke Event.
Come join the fun on Thursday night, September 21 at 7:00 pm.
My goal is to continue to have the best local/regional fair in the state. We must work as a team in order to accomplish this. We have brought the Pitt County American Legion Fair to you. Now, YOU, the community, and Eastern North Carolina region citizens must do your part by participating in the Exhibit Hall, the contests, and attendance at the various FREE shows.
Review all of the volumes of Department Class Listings in our Tabloid. There’s something for everyone. If you have never entered an exhibit item, enter one this year. Encourage your friends and neighbors to participate. Its lots of fun.
Pay close attention to our advertising businesses that helped to support getting this information to you at no cost to you. Thank them and give them your support.
In addition to all the exciting attractions, our fair management team provides FREE PARKING each and every day of our fair week (September 19 – September 24). Parking along the highway is prohibited. So bring your children, friends, and neighbors to our 98th Annual Pitt County American Legion Agricultural Fair. Don’t miss out on the most exciting event of the year. Please join us on the Midway. I look forward to seeing you there as we are RACING TO THE FUTURE to Year 100.
