For more than 70 years people of all ages have anticipated the return of the Chowan County Regional Fair. In fact, you can find signs announcing its approach scattered throughout Edenton and Hertford two months in advance. And it’s easy to see why: For four days every late September or early October, regional exhibits and displays, fairground rides, games and vendors populate the American Legion Fairground, bringing family-oriented fun to people of all ages. Check out the displays and exhibits to see artwork, baked goods, horticulture and other types of handiwork or see farmers show off their finest crops and livestock. Listen to the tunes from the live musicians; shriek on the thrilling rides; indulge in funnel cakes and other treats — the activities just go on! You can get tickets in advance online, from various suppliers in the area or at the gates to the fair.
