2013 Dixie Classic Fair Date, Showtimes, Tickets and Schedule

wording

We do a lot of cool stuff during the summer and fall months. But one thing we haven’t done this year is go to the fair. However, we are planning to change that in a few weeks and go to the 2013 Dixie Classic Fair in Winston-Salem NC. The Dixie Classic Fair will be October 4th-13th. We have gone to this fair for the past several years and I have to tell you, it is awesome! So, for all of you who might want to go, here is an easy way to get all the info you need such as were to buy tickets, prices, Grandstand shows and times, schedule and more. I think I have included all you might want to know, or links to the info’s page, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I will do my best to get you the rest of the information you need. 🙂

Every time we go to the fair, I make a beeline to the roasted corn. Yummy. 😛 Jay and I always like to catch the concerts and walk around checking out the vendors. Amber likes to take a friend or two and get on all of the rides and then they often meet us at a concert or a vendor display. And we ALL like to eat the fair food. Amber especially likes the cheese steaks and Jay likes pretty much anything, though he especially likes popcorn. There really is something for everyone at the fair! 🙂

  1. This looks like a great fair

  2. I haven’t been to a fair in years. At my age I don’t think I could tolerate it.

  3. Wow this looks like an amazing time & I so want one of those apples!

  4. Oh WOW!!! I wish they were coming to my area! This classic fair looks absolutely amazing!! I would have a blast there with my kids!

  5. I like it that the grandstand events are included in the ticket price.

  6. I have never been to a fair like this! This is in my bucket list!

  7. You had me at ‘candy apples,’ but the goat sure is adorable too. I didn’t make it to the local fair this year, but this sounds like a nice retro (slower times) escape.

  8. This looks like so much fun. We have been a similar big fair in Texas. I’d love to visit this one too.

  9. I wish I was going. This looks like loads of fun

  10. ahh it looks like so much fun! those candy apples look amazing!

  11. Sherry Compton says:

    How fun! Fairs are always good, big, fun events! Family, friends, the community can all come out to have a good time. Be entertained while enjoying some unique food. Love that they are having several food drives.

  12. Sherri Lewis says:

    I haven’t been to the Dixie Classic fair since I was a teenager and went with my best friend and her family. Hmmmm… and that means the state fair is coming up right after that!

  13. State fairs are the best. By the line-up of events at the Dixie Classic fair, it looks like it would be fun. And after seeing the picture of the candy apple, I’m ready to go.

  14. 2nd comment …this one for your giveaway. I have been to this fair and love it. I have never seen so many odd fried foods in my life.
