Register online now!

Welcome to Virginia's Largest Outdoor Classroom
Presented by the Virginia Lottery!

At the State Fair we believe in bringing the best of Virginia together to nurture, preserve and celebrate the best of Virginia's culture- past, present and future. We cannot do that without supporting the younger and future generations. We believe in creating opportunities, cultivating passion, and empowering youth to create and explore.

Our mission of the Ed Expo is to increase agricultural and natural resource awareness, interest and education in Virginia through programs, exhibitions and competitions integral to the operation of the State Fair of Virginia. Whether you are a parent, teacher, or partner, we are here to work with you.

We encourage you to use the Ed Expo Guide for logistics information and to plan your trip! You may also use the 2022 Daily Thrill Guide to learn about what is happening daily!
