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!
Each year, the Arlington County Fair welcomes Fair goers to participate in Competitive Exhibits (CE). It’s an opportunity for participants to showcase their artistic work and/or products they’ve made or grown, and to compete against others in the same categories.
