2022 Schedule and Information      

Information about purchasing tickets.

We are still recommending that individuals register for their tickets and pay in advance with a credit card as this is their easiest option. However, for schools that are unable to use a credit card, they may select to “reserve” their tickets at pay at the gate with a check.  If they buy their tickets prior to 9/15, they can mail their check in advance, just make sure they add attn to Ed Expo or Student Competitions and place that on the memo line. My ed expo language is below.

  • Register for your tickets if you are paying now with card
    • This is recommended and will save time in lines, so you have your tickets at the gate!
  • Reserve your tickets if you are paying later with check
    • May be mailed in advance if purchasing prior to 9/15, but we will have a will call area for Ed Expo at the gate to receive checks at the gate.

Current State Fair Scholarship Program      
The State Fair of Virginia offers several scholarships through the many youth competitions of the Fair. Scholarship funds are held in a State Fair of Virginia, Inc. interest-bearing custody account. Annually, you will receive notice of your current balance. In future years, the balance will include the pro-rated interest that has been earned on your account balance.

When you have enrolled in an accredited college, university, or trade program, the earnings will be paid directly to your student account at your educational institution. To access scholarship funds, after enrolling in school, you will complete the Scholarship Payment Request Form (a copy is enclosed) and submit the form to the school’s registrar’s office. The registrar’s office will then forward the request to the State Fair of Virginia for payment.

Scholarships not used by your 24th birthday will revert from your name back into the State Fair of Virginia Scholarship Fund. You may not request that funds be transferred to another student.

Please visit our website, www.statefairva.org, and click on ‘State Fair Scholarship Program’ (https://www.statefairva.org/p/other/state-fair-of-virginia-scholarship-program) for general scholarship information.
