Every year, the North Carolina State Fairgrounds stays alive with a diverse array of events that attract all kinds of visitors. The Fairgrounds is one of the special places in Raleigh where large-scale events can be hosted for Lifelong Learners, Adrenaline Junkies and Free Spirits all within the same month.
For the Lifelong Learners, there’s the Native American Indian Art Show on Feb. 26th to the 28th in the Holshouser Building. This art show and sale displays pieces from the southwestern tribes and pueblos, including Santa Clara, San El Defonso, Laguna and Navajo. There will be hundreds of items for you to enjoy, such as jewelry, drums, bows, pottery, artifacts and framed artwork, to name a few. Admission to this event is free.
Adrenaline Junkies can discover a different kind of sport at the Capital City Gun Show on Feb. 25th and 26th in the Jim Graham Building. This event attracts collectors, hunters and enthusiasts from all over the state in order to buy, sell and trade everything from guns and knives to hunting supplies and ammo. Daily admission is $8, but discount coupons are available here.
The NC Diocese Ignited by Truth Conference is not your typical visitor attraction, but it’s still something Free Spirits can enjoy. This weekend of spiritual insight and inspiration for people of all faith traditions will feature workshops, speakers and discussions ranging in subject from spiritual combat to scripture. Sessions in Spanish are also available.
No matter what your visitor personality is, you’re sure to find something that speaks to you at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds this month. Check out a full calendar of events here.
