Virginia State Fair - Worth it?

by Geeedavey Online Now Aug 23, 2004 at 1:39 PM

I live in Maryland and my wife and I are always on the lookout for weekend trips. We have talked about going to Richmond for a while and we will definitely go sometime in October or November. My question is whther it is worth going to the State Fair. It seems like its pretty expensive ($13 in advance,18 at the gate), so if its just another fair (like Maryland, which is pretty small and kind of junky), I wouldn't bother. But I also once went to the New Mexico State Fair and it was great. Any comments appreciated.

    As much as I love Virginia - We welcome everyone; but personally - - I can't say our State Fair is worth it - sorry. Come for another reason instead. There is the Jamestown Settlement celebration for 400 years coming up in 2007 - - visit Williamsburg too?

    the state fair has run it's course and they have fewer attendees than before because of the mega amusement parks that open in Va like Kings Dominion and Bush Gardens, so no it is not worth it no longer.
