At the Arlington County Fair, enjoy all the things you’ve come to love about this annual community event, including exciting midway rides and carnival-style food and games.

Don’t miss the live entertainment, including local music groups and solo performers in the Entertainment Tent, the photo-worthy pie-eating championship, and there’s even a foam party! Plus, kids will enjoy a space just for them — the Kids Court! There is literally something for all ages to enjoy:

Ax Throwing & Escape Room
Big Trucks
Night Market
Drew Blue Shoes
Pizza Eat-A-Slice Contest
Pie-Eating Championship
Foam Party

Plus, during new sensory-friendly hours, fair friends can enjoy all the magic without loud sounds or music! Friendly volunteers will be on-hand to assist as needed. Families are welcome to visit the sensory break tent area, set up during sensory-friendly hours as well as various other times during the fair:

• Aug 19, 2022; 4-7 pm
• Aug 20, 2022; 11 am -6 pm
• Aug 21, 2022; 12-4 pm

Get to know the Fair before you visit! See the full entertainment schedule online, buy ride tickets for select days, and figure out the best way to get there.
