In addition to our services for farmers, agribusinesses and consumers, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services also operates the N.C. State Fair. Although the Fair doesn’t kick off until Oct. 15, planning is well under way. We announced the theme for the 2009 Fair on Monday over at our redesigned Deep Fried @ the N.C. State Fair blog. Click on the link or the image above to check out the blog, theme and a video we put together with help from Commissioner Troxler, the State Fair press office and fairgrounds employees.
Check in with the State Fair Web site for the latest news as we launch the ’09 site at the beginning of June, and find the Fair on Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and Twitter.
