Field Day of the Past – Goochland

Field Day of the Past is a private show/ fair held in Goochland County each year that celebrates antique machinery and methods that would have been used when Goochland was mainly agricultural. It is a venue that includes 4-H shows, farm machinery, old cars and trucks, a flea market, amusement area, old trades, truck and tractor pulls, music, and pig races. Approximately 50,000 people attend the three day event.

Our Goochland Powhatan Master Gardeners Association has a booth each year in conjunction with the Virginia Cooperative Extension.
