Our Fair is held yearly in late August on fairgrounds located at the Southwest Virginia Farmer’s Market in Hillsville, Virginia.

 

Goals of our Agricultural Fair:

  • To be both fun and educational for people of all ages.
  • To give  our community  an economical place to enjoy themselves while learning about the importance of Agriculture.
  • To become a community event that everyone takes pride in.
  • To give  individuals a chance to reminisce about the way things used to be and at the same time show how agriculture and the area has progressed.
  • To have folks come away from the Fair with a better understanding of the area’s agriculture diversity and agriculture’s importance to the area’s economy.
  • To have a wide variety of fun events for children of all ages such as the carnival rides,  storytelling,  beauty pageant, and 4-H family fun games, and  more.
