The 2015 N.C. State Fair is officially open! The Fair, which draws hundreds of thousands of people from across the Triangle each year, is open from now until Sunday, October 25th. The Fair offers a wonderful opportunity for a fun fall outing for many families, with attractions, games, food, and educational exhibits for children of all ages.
If you are headed to the fair with young children, be sure to check out some of these general tips before you go!
- Parents can bring their own diaper and lunch bags, food, drinks, wagons, strollers, and other personal items to the fair; all baggage will be searched at the gate.
- There are strollers and wagons available for rent at Gates 1, 8, 9 and 10.
- There are changing tables available in most restrooms, along with family restrooms in the Martin and Expo buildings. There are also “mothers’ rooms” in the Scott, Martin, Expo and Graham buildings to provide a private area for nursing mothers.
- The Kiddieland Midway area consists of about 25 rides, in addition to about 4 games suitable for young children. Most children’s rides cost between 2 and 4 tickets. The games do not accept ride tickets, and are cash only.
