Exploring Virginia Traditions at the Orange County Fair

This weekend marks the annual Orange County Fair.  The 2013 fair runs Thursday, July 25th to Saturday, July 27. The rustic Virginia experience provides fair goers with a weekend of great food, fun events, contests, games and more.  The Orange County Fair isn’t your typical carnival.  It harkens back to historic Virginia, with livestock shows, cloggers, cow-milking, mule jumping competitions, pony rides, potato sack races, crafts and a petting zoo.  Enjoy tasty local food and participate in contests ranging from pie making to tomato growing. 


The fair celebrates American history through the culture of Orange County, Virginia, its agricultural heritage and the traditions that made it the stand-out Virginia area that it is today.


The Orange County Fair brings the community together -- visitors and Virginia locals alike. It highlights the slow, easy-going vibe of Virginia living – reflecting an “old fashioned” fair that reflects on the past and looks towards the future.


With a goat milking contest, a bubble gum blowing challenge, animal shows and three-legged race, the Orange County Fair is one of a kind.  If you are in the Charlottesville area, be sure to stop by and see what Virginia has to offer.
