Doors Open At 6 p.m.

Arena Entertainment (6-7:25 p.m.) Erica Jones Band

Erica Jones is an Angier, North Carolina native who has been entertaining audiences since the age of 13. She has a love for all genres of music, but considers herself to be more of a polished traditional country music artist. A graduate of Campbell University, Jones has opened for recording artists including Rick Trevino, Diamond Rio and Jo Dee Messina, while at school and then with local country bands including Hobo Junction before heading to Nashville. She spent nearly a decade performing and doing demo work on Music Row, also performing regularly at the world famous Nashville Palace.
Jones recorded her first album entitled "I'd Find You" which included songs written by some of Nashville’s finest songwriters, but has since moved back to her hometown where she performs as a regular on the Country on the Outskirts Show, as well as performing locally for festivals, community, civic and church events.
Her band members are: Hugh Jackson, steel guitar; Brent Shattuck, lead guitar; Rich Holder, piano; Jody Jones, bass guitar; and Gage Havari, drums.


Vendor Bazaar (6- 7:30 p.m.)
Each year we welcome around 50 or so vendors with fun, interesting and helpful products. Come ready to pick up a must needed item, or just to shop around. We welcome new and favorite vendors each year.


Children's Area (6- 9 p.m.)
The Kids’ Korner offers a safe, secure, fun place for you to leave your children while you enjoy the entertainement. The Kids’ Korner will be run by the 4-H this year.

As you know, 4-H specializes in providing fun, creative hands-on activities for kids of all ages! Children will be able to learn the magic of electricity and create their own electric circuits, electromagnets, build brush bots, build their own energy efficient homes and more!
There will also be a bunny holding station outside thanks to one of the 4-H rabbit clubs!


Elgie Behagg of Fayetteville, seen here with Executive Vice President and CEO, Chris M. Spears, was the winner of the 2010 GMC 1500 series truck! Congratulations!
