"Walk-around Ticket Special"

Because of  the  weather  last  year, not  many  people  took  advantage  of  the "Opening night  special"   of a $10 walk around  ticket.  This year, the Fair Board, with the cooperation of Playworld's owner, has decided to offer the walk-around ticket for three nights instead of just one. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; September 23, 24, and 25 a non-ride (walk-around)ticket will be available for $10.00. It is hoped that this offer will allow those persons to enjoy the Fair that were unable to enjoy it before. Walk-around tickets can be purchased at the door for only $10.

"Senior Special"

Persons age 65 and over will be admitted free on Thursday night only, starting at 4pm..

 "Military Appreciation Night"

In an effort  to. recognize  and honor  the  active  military personnel  that  protect our country, Chowan County Regional Fair and Playworld  Amusements are once again offering a full benefit gate admission to this year's fair at a reduced price. This ticket  will be $10.00 and available to active military personnel and their  families  with  Military ID. ID will need to be shown to ticket seller at time of purchase. This offer is for Wednesday September 25th only and tickets must be purchased  at the gate. A special ticket  booth  will  be set up for this  event to make the  entry process  go much  smoother, and  must  be used  to  get  the discount.  This ticket  is good  for everything as our regular one price gate ticket that costs $18.00.


Also, in honor  of our Military guests, a special one night  Fireworks  Show will  take place. The exact time  has not  been determined but  will  occur  during  regular  fair  hours. Because of the weather  last year, not many people were able to enjoy this event. It was a really a great show and well worth adding to your fair experience. So, to avoid the weekend rush and see an added attraction not  available  on any other  night, join  your  military friends  at the Chowan County Regional Fair Wednesday, September 24.

Midway closes at 11:00 pm except Saturday when it closes at 12 Midnight.  ABSOLUTELY NO glass containers will be allowed on the Fairgrounds.  Shirts are required.  NO alcoholic beverages will be allowed on the Fairgrounds.  Chowan Country Regional Fair officials reserve the right to refuse admission to and/or evict anyone who is disorderly and/or intoxicated.

Thanks, and we know you'll have a great time.
We look forward to seeing you at the Chowan County Regional Fair.
