Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler is hosting the Century Farm Family Reunion at the N.C. State Fair on Oct. 17, 2012.
Each farm family will be given up to four tickets to the reunion on Oct. 17. Tickets will get you into the N.C. State Fair and the reunion. You will be given the opportunity to purchase tickets for additional family members.
The reunion will take place in Dorton Arena at 11 a.m. and will last to about 1 p.m. and include lunch, entertainment and speakers. Plus the chance to meet and mingle with other multi-generational farmers.

Tickets & Parking Info
Tickets were mailed on Monday, Oct. 1. If you RSVPed before Sept. 27, you will receive two sets of tickets - one is the complimentary gate admission ticket to get you into the N.C. State Fair. The other is the ticket to get into Dorton Arena. (NOTE: this ticket says Thursday, Oct. 17. That is a typ and it should say Wednesday, Oct. 17). We will also use these tickets for door prizes, so have each member of your party write their names on the back.
There is also a parking pass. There will be a parking area in Carter-Finley Stadium for Century Farm families. There will also be a shuttle to get you from the parking area to Dorton Arena. You are not required to park in this area or to use this shuttle. It is there for your convenience. Parking is free in Carter-Finely Stadium for everyone.
State Fair information
Country music singer and North Carolina native, Jason Michael Carroll, will be performing in Dorton Arena on Wednesday night. Tickets can be purchased for $5 at the North Dorton box office the day of the reunion.
Please note: A few years ago, we lost contact with a lot of families when the Post Office changed rural route addresses to street names for 911 purposes. If your family is no longer listed or italicized, please send us your family's updated contact information. There is an update form on the application page.
If you received a postcard and there isn't a date filled in, we have incomplete information on your farm. Please provide this date for us.
