The “old fair” name of The Northern Neck Agricultural Fair is long gone, but it is remembered as a special place in the hearts and memories of many that attended. In 1957 it was listed as “The Biggest Little Fair in the South”. Program events such as harness racing, dairy cattle judging, beef cattle demonstration, swine judging, tractor driving contest and the “Miss Northern Neck Fair” beauty contest kept everyone entertained.

The fair started on Monday and ran through Saturday . General admission for adults was 60 cents and children under 12 years was 30 cents. Midway rides and big shows were provided by George Clyde Smith Shows. Kids still marvel at the rides, although the rides have evolved over time. They still get excited when they win a prize at a game of skill or in a contest with their prize animal. Exhibitors are still proud of their baked goods or canned items. Politicians still make sure that they attend to press the flesh and shake hands of many they would court for a vote.

Exhibitors and food vendors still display their goods. Bands play music on the stage, bingo games offer challenges of skill and luck. Smells of funnel cakes, kettle corn, hamburgers and BBQ, fish sandwiches and of course ice cream fill the air with pleasant aromas. It is the history of the “old fair” and memories of days gone past that revive us today. Our fair spirit is still alive and kickin' and we want you to be a part of it. So come on out and join us at the “Richmond County Fair”.

This year's fair is shaping up to be even more exciting.  The Racing Pigs, a crowd favorite, will be back.  The Timber Show will also return this year, with the addition of a water log spinning show. We will also have new vendors in our food court.  Long range plans for the Richmond County Fair include capital improvements to the Memorial Hall; improved lighting and completion of the warming kitchen.   Also, the Fair will focus on improving our support of the local 4-H Program by making improvements to our Livestock Pavilion Show Ring.
