Welcome to the Powhatan County Fairgrounds
Founded in 1919, the Powhatan Fairgrounds is a privately operated long-standing community institution. The Powhatan Fair Association received 501(c) (3) non-profit status in 1999. Through donations from citizens and organizations across Central VA, we continue to deliver services and events in the community. Proceeds from all events go back into the community through scholarships and helping needy families/seniors.
Governed by a board of directors, the Executive Board, members, and volunteers, none of which are paid, are dedicated to serving the community. Our ultimate goal is to create community pride, hope, opportunity, social and economic stability--making a significant difference for people of all cultures.
Our Purpose is to…
Assure the long-term viability of the Powhatan Fairgrounds and facility usage
Celebrate the heritage and diversity of Powhatan County--present an exceptional Annual County Fair
Train and provide educational opportunities for citizens
