Celebrating the Fair’s 70th Anniversary
Family Fun is synonymous with the Robeson
Regional Agricultural Fair, and this year, we
all have a lot to celebrate. “It is a milestone
to have a county fair survive 70 years, much
less grow like ours has,” said Allen Faircloth,
President of the fair. “It is a testament to the
volunteers and their families who sacrifice
their time, talents, and dedication over the
years. It is a testament to our patrons who
come out and enjoy the rides, entertainment,
and exhibits that we offer. We could not do it
without the farmers, bakers, and talented folks
who enter their exhibits looking to be the blue
ribbon winner. It takes a lot of folks to make
a successful fair, so we have a lot of folks we
want to celebrate with.”
The celebration will begin shortly after the
gates open on Thursday, September 29, at 4:30
p.m. with the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. “It’s
been several years since we have had an official
ribbon cutting at the fair, but we thought
something as special as our 70th anniversary
was time to bring it back,” said Coble Wilson,
Past President of the fair. Anyone who is
anyone will be attending the event with
Steve Troxler, the State Commissioner of
Agriculture; Cherrie Berry, the State Labor
Secretary; and representatives, senators,
city councilmen, and county commissioners
scheduled to be in attendance. Faircloth said,
“It should be an opening to be remembered.”
In addition to the ribbon cutting, the fair has
brought in new acts and some familiar faces to
help celebrate. Returning this year is comedy
hypnotist Alan Sands, the Hansen’s Spectacular
Family Circus, and Rockit the Robot. New this
year will be Dakota and friends, a dinosaur act;
Agri-Puppets, a fantastic family friendly show;
and the Chickin’ Pickin’ Contest. “There is
a little something for everyone in this year’s
entertainment lineup,” said Wilson. “From
educational to silly, everything will strike a
chord of family fun for our patrons which is
what we want.”
Faircloth said Wade Shows will be back for
the 6th year, along with Big Rock Amusements
to offer rides and carnival games. “We could
not ask for a better partner with our fair and
are pleased with the quality of this carnival
and the rides and experience they offer our
patrons,” said Faircloth. The fair will also be
offering special family pricing on line and have
a variety of ticket options for fair goers listed
in their fair book. “We don’t want anyone to
miss this year’s fair,” said Faircloth.
The Robeson Regional Agricultural Fair will
open September 29 and run thru October 8.

entertainment, check out their website at www.
