The Arlington County Fair provides something for everyone. There are so many ways to participate! If you own a small business, restaurant or food truck, join us as an indoor vendor or a food vendor. Showcase your talents on our Entertainment Stage or share your crafts in Competitive Exhibits and compete for a ribbon.
Also check out ways you can support the Arlington County Fair by volunteering at the Fair, joining the Board or donating!
Competitive exhibits are at the heart of the Arlington County Fair providing the opportunity for community members to showcase their own talents and gifts. The 2022 Arlington County Fair’s theme is “What a Ride!” to celebrate the magic of this beloved Arlington tradition.
