The 16th annual Youth and Community Fair,
held in the Historic Hartwood district of Stafford County will be hosting the Stafford County Agricultural Competitions in the Stewart Jones Agricultural Area!
Stafford County has seen lots of progress and development in the last few years, and with this growth has come a change between its Rural / agricultural history and the emerging suburban / commuter population.
The base of youth who are familiar with agricultural endeavors for livelihood or personal consumption, or even the simple enjoyment of growing something on their own, continues to dwindle.
We hope that by installing this competition, that in addition to agricultural education, we can try to spur interest, and expose & raise awareness among youth in this area to Staffords "Roots" (Pun intended).
Some of the events & Organizations that will be in the Agricultural (AG) Area are below! As the festival is free, and open to the public we hope you will tell all of your friends, and make sure that they come out!
