Avery A & H Fair is a family oriented mountain fair known for friendliness and preservation
of the mountain heritage that has long been a part of the high country."
ACentury of Service in Avery.
This year's theme celebrates the 100th anniversary of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service. It began in 1914 when legislators wrote and passed the Smith Lever Act to expand the "vocational, agricultural and home demonstration programs in rural America". Throughout the past 100 years growers have learned about apple and vegetable production, growing native ornamentals and Christmas trees while employing knowledge from extension programs to improve water quality and soil fertility. Families have benefitted from canning clubs. sewing, cooking inexpensive meals. Youth learn about animals and farming through 4-H programs. The North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service provides research based information that increases the knowledge and skills of all families.
Come out to the fair and join our year long celebration for the Avery County Cooperative Extension Center.
