Get your entries ready for the 2018 Center Fair.

This old-fashioned country fair is a Davie County tradition which began in 1924. Generations of Davie folks have entered in the hopes of winning a blue ribbon.

The fair will be held on Friday, Sept. 7 and Saturday, Sept. 8 on the grounds of the Historic Center Arbor on US 64 just west of Mocksville.

There is no charge to enter items for judging and categories are open to all Davie residents. There are categories for children and adults in all types of interests. You may enter canning, culinary (baking), fine arts, photography, crafts & hobbies, clothing & fashions, field crops, horticulture (fruits & vegetables), plants & flowers, or just about anything you have made during the past year.

Entries will be judged and ribbons and cash prizes awarded. Entries will be accepted from 5-8 p.m. on Friday or from 7:30-9 a.m. on Saturday.

For a full list of categories, rules, and prizes pick up a copy of the 2018 Center Fair Book at one of several locations, including: NC Cooperative Extension, Davie County Register of Deeds, Davie County Enterprise Record, Davie County Chamber of Commerce, all in Mocksville.

Pit-cooked, pork barbecue will be available for sale all day Friday and Saturday until sold out in sandwiches, trays, plates, and pounds.

Vendors are welcome both days.
