According to State Manager, Marlene Jolliffe, “The State Fair endowment was created in 2007 and is to provide long term support in the areas of youth scholarships and career advancement initiatives, youth educational enrichment programs, and agricultural premiums.”

The mission of the State Fair of West Virginia is to produce a quality fair committed to the traditions of agriculture, family entertainment, and education, and to develop non-fair events that utilize the existing facilities, that create opportunities for growth, and that benefit the community served by the facility.

The 86th Annual State Fair of West Virginia opens Friday, August 13, 2010 and runs through Saturday, August 21, 2010.
