State Fair of Virginia canceled due to pandemic

The State Fair of Virginia will not happen this year due to COVID-19 concerns.

The State Fair posted on their website the following message: “We took our time looking at all of the different ways to make the event work under the current COVID-19 limitations. That included attendance, social distancing, face masks, temperature checks and other CDC and public health guidelines.”

The state fair is still considering options to offer fair food. Any registered vendors who paid a deposit for the 2020 state fair will be reimbursed.

The 2021 State Fair of Virginia is scheduled to take place on September 24 through October 3.
