DOSWELL, VA (WWBT) - The State Fair of Virginia has been cancelled Thursday due to the threat of heavy rain and possible severe weather. The State Fair will close at 7 p.m. October 1 and will not reopen for the remainder of the 2015 season.

"We feel it is important to respect the governor's state of emergency declaration, and we realize that our law enforcement and emergency medical service personnel may be needed elsewhere during this impending storm," said Marlene Pierson-Jolliffe, Vice President of operations for The Meadow Event Park.

If you purchased but have not yet used single-day, admission tickets and season passes will be able to exchange them via mail for a single-day admission ticket for the 2016 State Fair of Virginia. Unused Ride Wristband vouchers can be exchanged via mail for a wristband voucher for the 2016 State Fair.

To receive the 2016 tickets or vouchers, ticket holders should mail their unused 2015 tickets, passes and vouchers to: State Fair of Virginia, Attention: Ticket Office, P.O. Box 130, Doswell, VA 23047, along with the guest's name, address, telephone number and email address. A confirmation email will be sent to guests once the information is received.
