About Powers & Thomas

Powers & Thomas Powers and Thomas (4th & 5th Generation) have joined together to bring years of experience to your fair. From the latest in technology, iPad cash systems, and custom-designed food concessions, to some of the most advanced rides from Italy, the Czech Republic, and the United States.

Our entire team is hands on and it shows. When you lead by example there is a mutual respect that resonates throughout the company. Working with Powers & Thomas you will get a sense of unsurpassed teamwork, camaraderie, and unsurpassed detail to safety.  That is a common trait we share with other family businesses.

When it's time to get the show over the road, everyone plays a role. Whether it is working at a carnival or at your local business, if your work is performed with integrity, enthusiasm, and passion, an environment is created for all families to enjoy.

The Powers & Thomas employees, family & co-workers are what make us the winning team for your fair or event.

OABA Circle of Excellence With our arsenal of rides, games, and food, we can play venues from large fairs to all types of events and festivals. We have the knowledge and years of experience to make your event a success. We are also proud of our winter quarters and refurbishing facility in Holly Ridge, NC. In addition to events, we also specialize in ride rentals for corporate or film productions.

In the spring, we leave our home base of Wilmington, NC, and begin playing fairs and events from the Carolinas all the way up the East Coast and back down as far as Georgia in the fall..

Recently, Powers & Thomas Midway Entertainment was awarded the prestigious "North Carolina Safety Amusement Star Award" for excelling far beyond expectations in ride safety and maintenance.

We would like to show you what we have to offer, so when you're close by one of our events stop by and visit us or contact us for additional information.
