News from NC Cooperative Extension, Currituck

Fall Fun!

We have some exciting and innovative news for you! We know the year 2020 has been full of disappointment for many. Most recently it was announced that even the North Carolina State Fair has been canceled. N.C. Cooperative Extension in Currituck County has some encouraging news… We’ve been cooking up some Fall Family Fun!

While we can’t bring you the midway or the food vendors, we can provide a virtual fair experience complete with contests, exhibits, entertainment, and fair food recipes! Starting on September 1, 2020, join us online as we release new opportunities throughout the months of September, October, and November. Learn how to make various fall crafts; create some exciting DIY games for your family; compete for awards in various virtual contests and learn a little about our community along the way. 

Best of all, tickets are free! To access all the fun, register through Eventbrite at https://currituckfallfair.eventbrite.com. You’ll receive an automated email with access to the fair site when it opens in September as well as updates as more excitement is added. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to participate in Currituck County’s first-ever virtual fair!
