The 23rd annual Noland Day Country Fair will be held Saturday in the Providence community.
The day’s festivities will begin at 10 a.m. and continue throughout the afternoon until 3 p.m.
The fun-filled day will begin with the tractor parade at 10:30 a.m. and will include live entertainment.
No admission is charged to attend the daylong event, however organizers encourage contributions of any size that go entirely for the upkeep and maintenance of Historic Halifax Church, which is located on site and open for visitors during the event.
The restored Halifax Church was established in 1830 and is the oldest Presbyterian Church in Halifax County. It is still used for public functions today.
Some of the historic homes on the grounds will be open, and Noland Day festivalgoers are welcome to participate in a guided tour of the homes for a small fee, organizers said.
Antique farm machinery, classic cars and tractors will be on site, and visitors to the day’s event are encouraged to check them out.
Also throughout the day several vendors will be selling a variety of goods including hand-made crafts, furniture, plants, jewelry and antiques.
Food will be available throughout the day including hot dogs, homemade pies, baked goods and Providence’s famous Brunswick stew.
Noland Day Country Fair is located at the intersections of Morton’s Ferry, Cole’s Ferry and Lake Connor roads in northern Halifax County.
