The Cape Fear Fair and Expo is coming back to town! County fairs have been bringing friends together to celebrate the end of summer. Just mentioning a county fair can bring to mind images of livestock, crafts, sticky cotton candy, balloons, clowns, and the laughter of young and old alike.
Now in its 54th year, the Cape Fear Fair & Expo at Wilmington International Airport includes livestock exhibits and competitions, acrobats, horticultural contests, rides, children’s activities, food, family fun, and live entertainment.
The fair begins October 29th and goes through November 4th. The fair will be held next to the Wilmington International Airport and tickets will be available for purchase at the event.
Regular Admission is $22 per person. A Walk Around Ticket is available for $5 and at the gate; it excludes rides and is only valid Monday through Thursday.
Monday through Thursday: 5 pm-11 pm
Friday: 5 pm to Midnight
Saturday: Noon to Midnight
