Chesterfield County Fair
The first Chesterfield County Fair was held October 25-26, 1911, at what is now the Chesterfield government services complex encompassing the Mimms Loop and Lori Road areas. The concept for developing an agricultural fair originated with Senator John Benjamin Watkins (a co-founder of Watkins Nursery) who was selected as the Chesterfield County Fair Association’s first president, a position he held until his death in 1931. The Fair provided local farmers an opportunity to display the items they raised and a place to come together and get reacquainted with friends. Throughout our more than 100 year history, we have proudly continued this tradition. Our Arts & Crafts Building, built in 1998, is brimming to capacity each year with canned goods, flowers, vegetables, needlework and art work. Hundreds of items are entered for judging, just as before, and the goal is to win the Blue Ribbon.
