ASHLAND, Va. (WWBT) - The State Fair of Virginia is offering an additional three days to Fair Food Weekend!

The event has now been extended to Oct. 9-11 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

To ensure compliance with capacity guidelines, there are blocks of time for cars to enter. Attendees will park and walk up to vendors to order.

Each two-hour block has a limit of 750 cars, with cars entering and exiting throughout the event. Masks are required when picking up food or using the restroom.
