Talent Show

The Entertainment Committee of the Durham Fair is proud to announce the 14th Annual Talent Show. Imagine an opportunity to perform on the Center Stage at the Durham Fair as one of our Idols! Our finalist have all enjoyed this opportunity, win or not win, to share their talent with their friends, families and several thousand fair goers!

Many of our candidates have returned a following year. Since we have been doing this show, many contestants have said how much they “just love to perform”. We hope you feel the same way, because we are fair goers too – we enjoy having you perform and watching you grow with us.

Opportunities to participate in our Talent Show are open to all performers.* Consideration for our contestants is not taken lightly. We respect that you will have worked hard to prepare your presentation to a selection committee. Every performance will be evaluated with your talent and hard work in mind. As a selection committee, we are first of all, looking to entertain our Durham Fair audience. We do this by selecting a variety of acts that will fit together to make one exciting event for this audience. We hope you will apply and join in the fun.
