Virginia State Fair 2013 festival

The Virginia State Fair 2013 festival

Expected Attendance:  500,000+
The State Fair of Virginia is a state fair held annually at the end of September at The Meadow Event Park in Caroline County, Virginia. Through 2008, the fair was held at the Richmond Raceway Complex, located in eastern Henrico County, just outside of the capital city of Richmond. It is owned by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation.

The Fair has offered rides, carnival games, concerts, and typical Fair foods such as corn dogs, cotton candy, and funnel cakes as well as Virginia favorites such as barbecue, chicken and peanuts. The Fair has also offered technological, agricultural, historical, and livestock exhibitions and competitions, including pig races. Several of the competitions offered scholarships to students that competed.

The expositions have included: Virginia World which highlighted Virginia agricultural products, the better living center which hosted the arts & craft competition displays, the technology expo which highlighted Virginia technology industry, and Young McDonald’s Farm which displayed a variety of young animals for the urban visitor to see. Additionally, one section of the Fair has included a “Heritage Village” which displayed Native American, African American, and Euro-American history in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  via State Fair of Virginia – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
