The Wake County Wildlife Club’s Dixie Deer Classic has been recognized nationally as the Premier Trophy Whitetail Deer show in the country. The Dixie Deer Classic is held at the spacious North Carolina State Fairgrounds in the Jim Graham Building, J.S. Dorton Arena, The Exposition Center and Kerr Scott Building. The Dixie Deer Classic is a family-oriented event, and we try to offer something for everyone. All young under 13 have always been admitted free of charge and for the youth aged 13-18 we offer a half-price ticket on Friday for $ 6. There will be special programs all weekend for the young or beginning hunter, and fun stuff too, like face painting, BB gun Turkey Shoot, Archery Alley, Retriever Demos and the N.C. State Turkey Calling Contest. By the way, those half-price tickets are available on Friday for all females, service members and senior citizens (get your hand-stamped and come back all weekend).
