Raleigh, NC -- A conference call scheduled by the state Board of Agriculture may determine if the cost of admission to the North Carolina State Fair will go up.
The board has scheduled a conference call for Thursday afternoon.
The fair wants the board's approval to increase by the admission price by $1 this year. Under the proposal, adult admission would be $7 in advance and $9 at the gate. Gate admission for children ages 6-12 would go from $3 to $4, with a $1 discount for buying tickets in advance.
If the board backs the plan, state fair staff would proceed with implementing the proposed changes, subject to final approval later this year. The last change in admission prices occurred in 2010.
