State Fair of Virginia, Richmond: 2 reviews and 1 photos

  State Fair of Virginia, 2005
by b1bob

In late September through to early October, the State Fair is held on Strawberry Hill on the Richmond International Raceway Complex. That will soon change, as the State Fair's lease for there will expire round about 2007 and it is not known for sure where they will set up next. The most likely spot is in rural Caroline County, well to the north of Richmond touching suburban Hanover County. There are plenty of agricultural exhibits, rides, and typical carnival foods (corn dogs- weiners on a stick surrounded by cornbread, funnel cakes, and candy apples). I'm not normally keen on the rides, games, and food at the fair because the rides are put up and taken down regularly, the operators seem dodgy, and the food is not what I would call the best. However, I was there in 2005 to help my favourite candidate together with friends. Adam wanted to get some sweet kettle corn after the event was over.
