Kings Dominion isn’t the only place in Central Virginia that guarantees food and family fun. Virginia’s State Fair, held annually at Meadow Event Park in Hanover, is the perfect day trip destination.

You may have heard of Meadow Event Park. It’s the birthplace of Secretariat, the 1973 Triple Crown winner.

In addition to rides, and the attractions, this year’s fair will include the Birthing Center along with other animal exhibits, displays and competition. If you’re hungry, there’s nothing like “fair food,” uncluding turkey legs, deep fried Oreos, funnel cakes, cotton candy and much much more!

This year’s nightly concerts include such headliners as country legends the Charlie Daniels Band and John Anderson, along with Hall of Fame rockers Jefferson Starship (formerly Jefferson Airplane).

This year’s State Fair takes place from Friday, September 27, 2013 through Sunday, October 06, 2013. Meadow Event Park is off I-95 Exit 98 in Caroline County. For more information, visit
