The next State Fair is months away, but the fairgrounds will host the Got To Be N.C. Festival with carnival rides and North Carolina-made food and drink samples. There’s also a barbecue cook-off, a show called Gator Wars and an expanded flea market.  And if newer things are your thing, Let’s Shop Local will host handmade arts and crafts vendors in the Graham Building.

10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday, N.C. State Fairgrounds
