The 101st Pitt County Agricultural Fair
scheduled for September 22-27 of this year
has been cancelled.

Fair Manager Kenneth Ross said that restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic make it impossible to have the event and guarantee the safety of fairgoers, staff, and vendors. "We held off slightly longer than some fairs in the area in hopes of finding a safe way to make it happen," said Ross. “But after extensive discussions with local health organizations, vendors and operators, the Pitt County Fair Board decided to face reality and cancel for this year." They will soon begin making plans for fair in 2021.

"And by-the-way" said Ross, "It goes without saying that the people of Pitt County and the surrounding area have made our fair so successful every year. We appreciate their loyal attendance and look forward to resuming the fair in 2021."
