Just months after going bankrupt, the State Fair of Virginia opens to the public today at the Meadow Event Park in Caroline County.
Universal Fairs purchased fair before partnering with the Virginia Farm Bureau to keep the annual event running.
"We've been busy working with other agriculture groups and commodity groups to make sure that the fair continues to have a strong agricultural presence here," said fair spokesperson Greg Hicks.
Hicks told 8News they have a long-term plan for the fair, and it won't be going away any time soon.
"We're looking at it for the long term, I think we're looking for 20 years down the road, for us to still be here."
In its first year under new ownership, this year's fair will offer 10 new rides, plenty of fried food options and several new animal exhibits.
