Troxler says NC State Fair is canceled

Posted
 
RALEIGH - The North Carolina State Fair has been canceled for the first time since 1945.
 
Steve Troxler, agriculture commissioner for North Carolina, made the announcement Wednesday morning.
 
The most-highly anticipated event in North Carolina, the state fair was scheduled for Oct. 15-25. However, the continued spike in positive COVID-19 cases has shut it down.
 
Previous events at the state fairgrounds have been canceled due to the pandemic and resulted in $2 million in lost revenue.
 
Troxler said social distancing at the state fair is "unrealistic."
