After a two-year hiatus, one of the largest events hosted by the Fort Bragg community has made its long-awaited return — the Fort Bragg Fair. The fair has been a long-running staple for the Fort Bragg community but was put on hold due to COVID restrictions. One of the largest events hosted by Fort Bragg each year, the fair made a remarkable comeback in 2022, with a record-breaking 30,000 guests in attendance. While the 2022 fair has come to a close, we’re going to take a quick trip down memory lane and look at its highlights. This will help you gather details about what to expect at next year’s fair, as this is a family-favorite event you won’t want to miss.
