Arlington officials seek feedback on moving County Fair

Must Read

Should the Arlington County Fair relocate from its longtime location at Thomas Jefferson Community Center to Long Bridge Park?

Leaders of the board of directors of the non-profit organization that oversees the fair have made the request to move from Thomas Jefferson, and county-government officials are now polling the public.

An online poll to gauge response to the proposal is available at https://surveymonkey.com/r/DQS6WGW.

County officials said eight separate options were considered by an advisory panel, which whittled choices down to two options: staying at Thomas Jefferson or moving to Long Bridge Park, located at the north end of Crystal City. A move, if it happens, could occur as early as 2022.

The Arlington County Fair began life in 1977 as a small affair with competitive exhibits and vendor booths but no rides or midway. It has evolved into an August tradition; while the in-person 2020 event was canceled due to COVID, the fair returned in 2021.

For information on the fair, see the Website at www.arlingtoncountyfair.us.
