Business License Information
According to the Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue, businesses may need a business license if they intend to sell anything as a vendor, at the Chesterfield County Fair. If you sell merchandise at the fair, you must have a business license. If you display goods or services only, no selling, you will not need a business license.
Most vendors will need an Itinerant Merchant License with a special “County Event” rate (currently $50 per calendar year). If you own a business in Chesterfield County that sells merchandise or food and currently hold a business license you will not need to get an Itinerant Merchant License, as long as gross receipts earned at the fair are included in those reported for your regular Chesterfield County retail location(s). A few vendors may need a different type of license.
For more information and to obtain the license application please visit the Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue’s website or contact the office at 804-748-1281 for further information or questions. From that page, you will need to complete and file with the Commissioner of Revenue both
Please note this must be completed prior to the start of the fair. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the fair.
