Arlington County Fair

Small County. Big Fun.

August 17-21

Traditionally, the Arlington County Fair features competitive exhibits showcasing local talent, midway rides, and games, live outdoor music, and vendors. Favorite fair activities range from pony rides and carnival games to bounce houses and funnel cakes.

Each year for one week in mid-August, Arlington’s Thomas Jefferson Community Center is transformed into a colorful place bursting with fun. Find a spot up close on the racing track when the Hollywood Hogs All-Star Racing Team performs! Awkward, cuddly, and cute piglets scramble down the track during multiple races each day the fair is open.
