The North Carolina State Fair will back again this year in Raleigh, NC, from October 13 through October 23. Military Appreciation Day is Wednesday, October 19. The day will feature a military care package drop-off location, special exhibits and performances by military bands.
There is a new daily Military Admission Policy: Military adults (age 13-64): $5 at the gate (not available in advance or online, just show a military or veteran ID at the gate). All military personnel, including active duty, reserve, National Guard, retired and veterans are invited to take advantage of a discounted admission price every day of the Fair. This is a savings of $3 off the gate admission price, and $1 off the advance sale price. For more information, visit http://www.ncstatefair.org/
