Chatham County, NC – This weekend, the weather finally feels like Fall. Come out and enjoy the cooler temperatures at the 61st Annual Chatham County Fair.

The Fair runs September 28 – October 1. Face painting, food, rides, line dancing, live music, and the crowning of Little Miss Chatham County, will be happening all weekend long.

Adults, $4, Children (Age 6-12), $3, Children (Age 5 and under), Free

Bring the family out to enjoy games, rides, animals, crafts, (and my favorite) the best fair food around! I always run out of room in my stomach before I can sample all the goodies.
