In the past, the N. C. State Fair allocated $350,000 to book bands from across the country for evening concerts in Dorton Arena. Between 2011 and 2014, the state fair lost nearly $900,000 with this strategy. In 2015, fair officials chose to recruit North Carolina bands, a tactic that saved money and appealed to fair attendees.
