The Museum of the Albemarle will host our monthly 2nd History for Lunch Hybrid (both in person and via Zoom video), on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, at 12 p.m.  Kent Yelverton, manager of the North Carolina State Fair since 2018, will share stories of how North Carolinians have ushered in fall with a trip to the North Carolina State Fair for 168 years.  Memories that have been gathered over the decades are handed down from generation to generation, making the North Carolina State Fair one North Carolina tradition that has stood the test of time.  The COVID-19 pandemic led to cancellation of the 2020 fair, but this year, the fair is poised to come back bigger and better than ever.

The Museum will offer the History for Lunch in-person and through Zoom.  The educational program will be in the Gaither Auditorium of the Museum for in-person guest that still wish to social distance.  This lecture will also be online: register in advance through the Museum’s Facebook page or website to receive link to attend lecture.

The virtual program is supported by Southern Bank.
