Bedford County Fair: Let the Good Times Grow

Over 14,500 people attended the three day event during it’s return. Last year the fair returned and expanded to four days. The fair hosted over 18,000 visitors during the weekend.
The County Fair is made possible by Curry Martin, owner of Glenwood Oil & Automotive, Inc. in Huddleston volunteered to host the fair on his business property at 2074 Smith Mountain Lake Parkway.
