Clear Bag Policy

When attending the 2024 fair you must adhere to the clear bag policy

To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fairgoers’ entry into fairgrounds, Chesterfield County Fair Association (CCFA) has implemented a clear bag policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into fairgrounds. Exceptions to this policy will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection.

Allowed bag types

The CCFA strongly encourages fairgoers not to bring any bags, but fairgoers will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container into the fairgrounds, or when approaching queue lines of fairgoers awaiting entry into the fairgrounds:

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12" or 30.5 x 15.25 x 30.5 cm. This includes clear backpacks, clear fanny packs and clear cinch bags that fit within the permissible dimensions.
  • No buckles, grommets/hardware or décor can be concealing any part of the bag.
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags (Ziploc bag or similar) are permitted.
  • Small bags, non-clear bags that do not exceed 4.5" x 6.5" in size, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bags.

Not allowed

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to coolers* briefcases, non-clear backpacks, non-clear fanny packs, diaper bags* (unless medically necessary), non-clear cinch bags, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera or binocular bags or any non-clear bag larger than the permissible size (4.5" x 6.5")
