Dixie Classic Fair celebrates 129 years of tradition … where everyone’s a hero

Since 1882, farmers, homemakers, and families have been plowing the isles of the entertainment and paddocks of family agriculture and livestock to celebrate the fall cornucopia of Piedmont North Carolina.  Originally held downtown in the Brown’s Tobacco Warehouse at Main and Fifth Streets, the Fair was once known as the Piedmont Tobacco Fair to coincide with the harvest season of the region’s main crop and industry – tobacco.

Food and its consumption have become one of the fairs main flagships with  more real estate devoted to this activity than any other function.

This year, the weather forecasts promise to be another great season for benign indulgence of food, family,  fun, and even a little romance.  The Dixie Classic Fair continues through Sunday, October 9, 2011.
