Every July/August, youngsters and adults from all over Soutwest Virginia and several neighboring states carefully groom their best-looking calves, steers and horses for the Rich Valley Fair and Horse Show, a weeklong celebration of the rural way of life. There is something going on everyday at the Fair: livestock and horse shows, mule and horse pulling contests, tractor driving contests, a pet show, a beauty pageant, musical performances and a carnival.
Tradition is what we are all about here at the Rich Valley Fair and Horse Show. This is our 80th year of operation and a lot of things have changed but some will always stay the same. Good old fashioned Fair entertainment mixed with some of the new events that have developed over the years makes for wonderful family fun.
