Plan Your Fair Week with Full Schedule of Events

The 58th Annual Clarke County Fair is scheduled for August 12-18, 2012  in Berryville, VA. Time once again to wander among the shade of giant oak trees and catch up with friends and neighbors as summer winds to a close.

Daily admission is $7 for adults, $2 for children ages 5-15; children under 5 are free.
