Join the winners in Fair-a-dise

A blue ribbon winner from the 2017 Cabarrus County Fair

From beauty pageants to vegetable-growing contests, you can join the winners in Fair-a-dise. The 2018 Cabarrus County Fair is September 7-15 at the Cabarrus County Arena and Events Center (4715 NC-49, Concord) and officials are calling for contest entries.

Choose from hundreds of categories to find your blue ribbon event. The competitive exhibit area includes vacation photos, scrapbooks, fruits and veggies, cakes, cookies, quilts, model creations, kids’ summer craft projects, jewelry, paintings, flowers and much more.

Best of Show is awarded to one adult and one youth among the competitive entries. Those winners will continue on to compete in the North Carolina State Fair Best of Show contest for a chance to win $500 (and bragging rights).

Other events include the Cabarrus County Fair Pageant, Senior Talent Show and the farm equipment contest. Agriculture competitions include poultry, rabbits, mini horse, horse, mule and donkey, sheep, goat, dairy and beef shows. 

The 2018 Cabarrus County Fair Catalog is available online at Click on the Competitions tab to view contests, programs and other entry opportunities. All entry forms must be submitted to the Fair office by noon on Wednesday, August 22.
