The Tri-County Fair is
entering its 95th year of existence. What started in 1920 as a 4-H/open class exhibit at the old courthouse in Petersburg has evolved into an annual exhibit of agriculture, horticultural, floriculture, livestock, home economics, and art. These exhibits plus non-profit organizations, commercial exhibitors and vendors, coupled with a variety of entertainment, events and a varied midway makes the fair one of the finest county fairs in the state of West Virginia.
The growth has occurred because a few individuals valve the continuance of this cultural event and are willing to give of their time and talents to insure the fair is a success. However, on a larger scale the fair has been successful because of the support shown by the people in the beautiful South Branch Valley of the Potomac Highlands.
