10 a.m – 5 p.m.
*Due to the current situation surrounding the coronavirus COVID-19, and the latest public health parameters set forth by Gov. Northam and the CDC, the Virginia Farm Festival will not take place in 2020. The Meadow Event Park was excited to bring this event to the commonwealth. The partners we had and the programming that was planned were sure to offer a weekend of fun and appreciation for Virginia agriculture.
Mark your calendars for May 1-2, 2021 when the Virginia Farm Festival will celebrate its inaugural year.*
The two day Virginia Farm Festival is a newly branded event at The Meadow Event Park. Enjoy a day in the countryside with the family visiting your favorite farm animals, exploring large pieces of farm equipment from James River Equipment and interacting with the farmers from SouthLand Dairy in the Dairy Parlor, where they will give daily demonstrations on how to milk a cow and share the importance of milk and dairy in your daily diet.
Take a ride around the track on a old fashion pedal tractor. Little ones can feel like they are out in the fields as they race around on a mini-version of their favorite tractor. Presented by Hoober.
