"Experiencing our Treasures Past & Present"
An idea to renew the County Fair started some ten years ago. This effort started with various county employees studying other local and regional county fairs. A committee was formed within a couple of years consisting of county employees and local citizens.
The first county fair was held September 14th - 17th, 2005; it was called the Carroll County Expo.

The 2005 Expo was held at the VFW Grover King Post 1115 in Hillsville, Virginia. Many county employees and various citizens helped make the first year a success. Since 2005, the fair has grown into an annual event for our area to be proud of.
