One of my favorite things to do at the N.C. State Fair is peruse the products for sample and sale from the wide variety of vendors exhibiting around the fairgrounds. I also enjoy comparing the food concessionaire menus to find that perfect tasty treat.
With more than 850,000 attendees just as curious (and hungry) as me, the Fair offers an excellent opportunity to bolster your business or brand. Think you might have a Deep Fried bestseller? Visit the vendors section of our Web site to download an application and information. But don’t wait — applications are due by July 1.
Indoor and outdoor spaces are available, with a minimum of 8 front feet at each location. Completing an application means that your organization will be considered, but not guaranteed a space. Since most vendors return every year, there is very little turnover. But, we are always on the lookout for new and interesting products that will be a hit with fairgoers.
To find out a little bit more about how we go about selecting new vendors, check out this interview I did last year with the vendor coordinator, Letrice Vines.
