Who will run it in the future? A ten year agreement between the Lenoir County Fair Association and the Kinston Jaycees ended December of 2005. The fair association ran the fair during that time, but the Jaycees, who own the fairgrounds, want to end the relationship permanently and run the fair themselves. The Jaycees say their obligation to the fair association ended when the agreement expired. The two parties will meet in court October 2nd to determine in the future which group will run the fair.
