Since 1955, features a celebration for those near and far that showcases all that the county has to offer. Plenty of things to do and see for young and old such as children's activities, midway, entertainment, food and merchandise vendors, livestock and agricultural competitions and much, much more. Proceeds raised from the fair help the American Legion and the Jaycees for yearly community service projects. Commercial exhibits and education and agriculture booths are always held inside of the American Legion Building. It’s also a time when residents have the chance show off their prized livestock, flowers and crafts for ribbons and recognition, sponsored by the Onslow County Agricultural Extension. The fair has traditionally supported agricultural businesses locally and throughout North Carolina for years.
