We’ve all been longing for those fairs and festivals we have missed all Spring and, although we are not at the place where we can begin enjoying all that entails the fair atmosphere, A Taste of Summer will provide a sampling of those things to come.

Field Day of the Past and Deep Fried, Inc. have joined forces to present “A Taste of Summer”, a drive through fair food frenzy on the Field Day of the Past show grounds June 6 and 7 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from the fundraising event will go to the Field Day of the Past moving campaign.

Deep Fried will be on the Field Day show grounds selling corn dogs, fried oreos, funnel cakes, kettle corn and cool, soothing lemonade – all reminiscent of the fairs of our futures. Drive through the Field Day of the Past, Gate F, circle through the grounds until you get to the Deep Fried booth, place your order, pick it up and drive away knowing that you won’t be missing the fair experience forever.

We ask that anyone experiencing symptoms of the corona virus, please refrain from joining us and request that everyone wear a mask, as per the Goochland Health Dept. requirements. We also ask that you don’t stop to eat or visit while you are on the grounds

Directions: Take I-64, Exit #173, exit south towards Broad St. Rd. go 1/8 mile and turn left down Three Chopt Rd. (Rt. 622 beside Wise’s Choice). Proceed to Gate F, through the gate and follow the road towards the front of the field.

Field Day of the Past, sponsored by the Rockville-Centerville Steam & Gas Historical Association, has taken place for 28 years in its current location. After the 2020 show, the lease ends and the association must find a new home. Funds are needed to help find a new home and to maintain and move all the collections. The association is a (501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As such, all donations are tax deductible.
