Our Vision

  • Inspire agricultural education and create a venue for cultural opportunity for youth and families.
  • Provide unlimited opportunities to celebrate Chesterfield County’s history, heritage, culture and traditions by bringing the community together.
  • Be recognized as the premier county fair in Virginia AND throughout the entire country.
Admission to the fair allows you to visit all of the exhibits and vendors within the Chesterfield Marketplace (Exhibition Building) and the Arts and Crafts Building. You can also enjoy the many special shows/ground acts running throughout the day. There are also many exhibits throughout the grounds (Heritage Village, Mobile Dairy Classroom, Animal Exhibits, Chainsaw Artist, etc.) that you may enjoy free of charge. There may be a few special exhibits which do charge a nominal amount such as the highly popular inflatables. Our highly popular evening entertainment (Jousters, musical bands, rodeo, dog show, pageant) are FREE once you have purchased your admission ticket.
Depending on weather severity, rides may not be operational during rain or extreme heat (metal seats). Wind and lighting are most likely to close rides from operating. Once “that” weather has subsided, the midway provider will determine how quickly or if the ride(s) are able to be re-opened. It the (severe) weather forces the closure of the Fair for the duration of that day’s operation, please note that there is NO refund on your admission ticket(s) or ride ticket(s), including wristbands. There are no rain checks issued for another day, so please check out the weather before you come. If the weather passes and the Fair resumes operation THAT DAY, you may get your hand stamped for re-entry to the Fair THAT SAME DAY. NO REFUNDS or readmission for another day will be given. The Chesterfield County Fair Association does NOT handle the midway rides and cannot provide refunds for them.
Only certified service animals are permitted on the Fairgrounds. Please be prepared to provide any/all necessary proof/paperwork.
We do not allow outside food/drink/coolers to be brought onto the Fairgrounds. Baby food/bottles are the exception; they will be subject to inspection prior to entering. If you want to bring a meal and keep it in a cooler in your car, you can get your hand stamped allowing you to go out to your car and then return to the Fairgrounds that same day once you’ve finished your picnic.
Yes, motorized and manual wheelchairs are welcomed at the Fair. Mobility around the grounds has been made easier by the recent paving of the midway and walkways. Strollers/wagons are also allowed. Motorized vehicles such as golf carts are NOT allowed to be brought in by patrons. Anyone bringing their own motorized / manual wheelchairs / strollers / wagons / scooters assume ALL liability to any/all damage and/or injury and agree not to hold the Fair, its agents, officers, volunteers or Chesterfield County liable.
