Biographical or historical data
In 1854, the Virginia State Agricultural Society was formed, and its first organized exhibition was held that year. In 1906, the State Fair was held on the grounds of what would later become The Diamond baseball field, home of the Richmond Braves. In 1946, the Virginia State Fair became known as the Atlantic Rural Exposition, and its location was again moved. The State Fair of Virginia, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Its mission is to celebrate Virginia's heritage - to heed its roots in agriculture, advance its youth through scholarships, encourage friendly competition and foster multicultural celebrations in a fun, safe atmosphere.
