Carolina Classic Fair

THERE’S NO PLACE I’D RATHER BE!

OCTOBER 2nd-11th

We may have a new name, but change is nothing new for our fair. Since 1882, this classic Carolina event has had six different names. Times and names may change, but one thing remains the same – come October, there’s just one place to be.

The Drive | Winston-Salem's Drive-In Theater

Who is ready for some outdoor fun at night in a safe environment? The Winston-Salem Fairgrounds is proud to offer a drive-in theater that takes all safety precautions very seriously. The Drive is now open to provide a unique entertainment experience.

Yes, there is a way to leave your home, enjoy time together and know that every measure is being taken to keep your family safe and healthy!

This is a new era in entertainment. People want to get out of the house, but also need to know that they are not risking their health. At The Drive, we have incorporated protocols that would be impossible in a normal movie theater.

Nestled deep in a wooded setting just minutes from downtown Winston-Salem and Wake Forest University, Ryan’s has offered the Triad an escape from the ordinary since 1977.

Enjoy the panoramic view of large oaks and a rolling stream from the many window-side tables, or the large, starlight deck. Or, savor the intimate atmosphere from a comfortable sofa, and in the winter, the warmth of a crackling fireplace.
