Time for the Cabarrus County Fair—an internationally recognized event where outside voices are preferred and having fun is required. Did we mention the fresh, hot funnel cakes and live entertainment? Yeah, the Cabarrus County Fair has it all, September 5-13, at the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center, Concord, off Hwy 49.

Advance tickets and ride wristband vouchers are available for sale through Sept. 4 at www.cabarruscountyfair.com. Advance adult admission tickets for ages 12-64 cost $5 – a $2 savings off the gate price. Advance ride wristband vouchers can be purchased for $15, offering a $5 savings. Ride wristbands are offered every day of the Fair and allow fair-goers to ride unlimited mechanical rides at one low price. Just bring the advance ride wristband voucher on any day of the Fair to redeem for a wristband at the midway guest relations booth inside the fairgrounds.

Just steps from the midway, families can visit the pavilion, which includes the community, arts and agricultural heart of the show. Tour the Fair’s exhibit hall to view blue ribbon entries, learn about County programs and resources, or visit local business/organization exhibits. Then, make your way to the livestock area where you can milk a cow, watch pigs race, interact with animals or catch a livestock show.

The Cabarrus County Medical Society Alliance announced that registration is now open for the 10th Annual Cabarrus Health Alliance Public School Nurse Program Golf Tournament entitled ‘Swing for the Kids.’
Since 2005, over $265,000 has been raised to help keep a Nurse in Every School through this annual event.
“As a Cabarrus County Medical Society Alliance member, retired nurse, golfer and community member, I have had the pleasure and honor of participating in our fund raising event for the last 10 years. School nurses are so important to our community in support of every public school student in this county, and without this tournament some child at some school may not have had a nurse available to them at a critical moment. A yearly golf tournament has been a fun and rewarding way to support that program by way of personnel or necessary supplies,” shared Mary Ellen Williams.
“Funds from previous years have been essential in purchasing medical equipment for the health offices such as recovery cots, littman stethoscopes, suretemp thermometers, pulse oximeters, welch allyn macroview otoscopes, and most recently – laptops for the implementation of the School Health Electronic Health Record,” according to Kim Ragan and Alice Luttman, School Nurse Supervisors. “These funds ensure that our students are taken care of with the best quality equipment and supplies,” Nurse Ragan continued. The group set a goal of $35,000 this year. Previous tournaments have yielded upwards of $30,000. Their hope is that teams, sponsors, and donors from previous years will return to celebrate this ten year milestone. This year the tournament will be held on Monday, October 13, 2014 at the Cabarrus Country Club. It is Captain's Choice with a shotgun start at noon. Registration is $125 per player or $400 for a 4-person team. Mulligans Packages are available for $20 per player, a Putting Contest for $10 per player and an Out of the Cup Contest for $5 per player. Sponsorships are also available and donations are welcomed! For more information, visit Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Swing4Kidz or email the group at ccmsagolf@gmail.com. The registration and sponsorship brochure is also available on the Cabarrus Health Alliance webpage: www.cabarrushealth.org.

A variety of events are always occurring in Harrisburg each week, from church happenings to fundraisers and celebrations. For that reason, we've created this community events listing. Here we will share those Harrisburg events that are not sponsored by the town, but could certainly use your support.



Town-affiliated events and meetings will remain posted on our website calendar and under upcoming events.



To submit an event for the "community events" page, email Ann Gibson, communications specialist, agibson@harrisburgnc.org.



For other area events, you are encouraged to check local resources including newspapers and online event calendars.
