State Fair of Virginia Shut Down

Hope you already got your funnel cake.

The State Fair of Virginia in the Meadow Event Park in Caroline County announced today that it will shut down Thursday night at 7 p.m. and will not reopen for the remainder of the season.

It was supposed to go on through the weekend, but the weather is putting a damper on this annual fall event.

“Safety is the fair’s No. 1 priority for our customers, vendors, exhibitors and workers,” said Marlene Pierson-Jolliffe, vice president of operations for The Meadow Event Park. “We feel it is important to respect the governor’s state of emergency declaration, and we realize that our law enforcement and emergency medical service personnel may be needed elsewhere during this impending storm.”

People who purchased but have not yet used single-day admission tickets and season passes will be able to exchange them via mail for a single-day admission ticket next year’s State Fair of Virginia, which will be held Sept. 30 through Oct. 9 2016. Unused Ride Wristband vouchers can be exchanged via mail for a wristband voucher for the 2016 State Fair.

Mail your unused tickets by October 30 to:

State Fair of Virginia, Attention: Ticket Office
P.O. Box 130
Doswell, VA 23047

Be sure to include the guest’s name, address, telephone number and email address. A confirmation email will be sent to guests once the information is received.
