A Craig County tradition that began in the early 1900’s, the fairgrounds

has hosted Craig County Agricultural Fairs, Miss Craig County pageants,

carnivals, livestock shows and many numerous family events.   For years

owned by local citizens – stockholders– it is now owned by the Craig County

IDA and leased to the Fairgrounds Association who donate profits to the Field

of Dreams project.

          In recent years, hardworking volunteers have cleaned up the property

by either tearing down or renovating old structures to provide for safe

and modern use of the grounds.  The seven acres boasts a ball diamond,

horse-riding ring, a demolition derby area, and a performing arts stage

complete with dressing rooms and concrete dance pad. There are also three

modern food service facilities.

The Fairgrounds are  located off of Route 311 (Salem Ave.) and Kanawha

Street in New Castle, VA 24127.  If you are coming from the Roanoke

area, the Fairgrounds will be the 2nd right once entering town, turn by the

old JC Depot/Briz onto Kanawha Street

2020 Demolition Derbies are being planned for Spring, Summer, and Fall.


The Fairgrounds can be leased from the Association for $150 /day. 

New members are always welcome!
