DOSWELL, Va. (AP) - Organizers for the 2014 State Fair of Virginia are seeking Virginia musicians, dancers and others to perform at the fall event.
Officials say they're accepting applications from Virginia-based performers for the event's local music venue. One-hour slots are available on each day of the fair's 10-day run.
The deadline for interested individuals and groups to send samples of their work is Sept. 1.
The fair will take place Sept. 26 through Oct. 5 at The Meadow Event Park in Caroline County.
Officials say last year's fair attracted 229,000 guests.
