BLACKSBURG, Va., Sept. 21, 2015 – Virginia Cooperative Extension Day at the State Fair of Virginia will be held Sunday, Sept. 27, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at The Meadow Event Park in Doswell. The event will feature educational exhibits on food safety, 4-H youth development programs, gardening, emergency preparedness, nutrition, aquaculture, and much more.
“During Virginia Cooperative Extension Day, fairgoers will be able to see a sampling of what Extension has to offer in communities across Virginia,” said Lori Greiner, chair of the Virginia Cooperative Extension Day. “Extension has a lot of offer, and we want to encourage the public to take advantage of these programs.”
Fairgoers will be encouraged to visit the Extension exhibits located around the fairgrounds. Each area has information, free giveaways, and hands-on activities for all ages. Those who visit at least five exhibits will receive a Virginia Cooperative Extension drawstring backpack, while supplies last. Maps and more information will be available at the fairground entrance.
