President’s Message


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 65th annual Chatham County Agriculture and Industrial Fair. From September 10 through 13, 2015 we will celebrate 65 years of service to all the citizens of Chatham County. And we are delighted to once again partner with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, Chatham County Center, providing fun and entertainment for everyone.

On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to invite you to display your arts and crafts, fruits, vegetables and livestock. Please review the different categories listed in our premium booklet and plan to enter your products. Registration begins for all non-perishable entries on Tuesday, September 8th from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., and continues Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Please note that only perishables will be accepted Thursday morning September 10th, between 8:00 - 9:30 a.m.

We are excited to announce that Power & Thomas Amusement will be our carnival host for 2015, with rides, games and carnival foods. 5 Star Farm from South Carolina will provide their always popular petting zoo, a toy train ride around the grounds, and additional games for all to enjoy.

Don’t miss the “Tiny House” at the rear of the fairgrounds to be built during the Fair by the Chatham County Habitat for Humanity!

We have prepared a fun filled four days of events for your enjoyment including music every night, both inside and outside. Come on out and bring the family, smell the aroma of the food and enjoy the rides and games!

Have a great, fun-filled week!

Larry Brooks
