County Fair Town Fest Enrichment Support Net

Updated on August 19, 2013

Heritage bridge to arts & science (With education & appreciation elements for community wealth building knowledge economy of the future)

A fair is an ancient tradition, & many communities have long had dedicated fairgrounds; others hold them in a variety of public places, including streets and town squares, or even in large private gardens. Fairs are often held in conjunction with a significant event, such as the anniversary of a local historical event, a seasonal event such as harvest time, or with a holiday.

American county fairs are tied to the nation's agricultural past. Before the Civil War (1861-1865), vast majority of Americans worked in agriculture. Annual Fairs were a time for buyers, sellers to come together and as an occasion for other community activities for social, cultural, spiritual and heritage elements.

October Fair, time of harvest and prelude to the holiday time has always been an important part of the American heritage, starting here in old time Virginia, to elsewhere in the nation. Here in Virginia for example, most of the 95 counties in Virginia, and many independent cities & town still has an annual fair tied to this legacy of the past agricultural history.

      I participate in a Farmer's Market with handmade goods once a month. I love connecting with people and I have met new friends there. I love that open avenue with food and art.
