2009 Dixie Classic Fair


The Dixie Classic Fair, the second largest agricultural Fair in North Carolina and owned and operated by the city of Winston- Salem, has announced the lineup of its key entertainment attractions and grandstand performances for the 2009 annual 10-day event. This year, featured entertainment includes King’s BMX Bike Show; popular hypnotist, Terrance B, with his incredible Hypnodog; Roger Abrahamson, an artist who makes wooden bowls using a foot powdered lathe in Yesterday Village; and Spoon Man, a new artist who makes music using only spoons as instruments, just to name a few.

“At Dixie Classic, we invite a variety of talented groups and individuals who are some of the best in their industries,” said David Sparks, Dixie Classic fair director. “Each show brings new memories from new and returning acts alike.”

In addition to demolition derbies, rodeos and the antique tractor pull, the grandstand lineup includes country artists the Lost Trailers, the Jimmy Buffet tribute band Parrots of the Caribbean and contemporary Christian group Need to Breathe.

On the Fairgrounds, there are more than 70,000 square feet of exhibits offering livestock, poultry, educational booths, fine arts and crafts, hobbycrafts, preservation, homemaking, photography, antiques, flowers and national cooking competitions. The Dixie Classic Fair also features horticulture exhibits which include fruits, vegetables, wheat, grains and tobacco — promoting our local agricultural heritage. Historic demonstrations and displays can be seen in Yesterday Village, a reconstructed village built from log buildings donated to the fair that include a blacksmith shop, tinsmithing, weaving on a loom, antiques and restored from machinery displays.
