Area residents can look forward to at least one more year of the Prince William Fair.

The Prince William Veterans Farm Club has leased the 85-acre property for the month of August to Ahmet Aksoylu, owner of Aksoylu Properties in Manassas, according to Victor Smith, a member of the Farm Club’s board of directors. The lease agreement was signed Friday, Jan. 24, Smith said.

Smith said the lease agreement stipulates that operators will manage the fair, including hiring food and entertainment vendors.

“We’ll provide institutional knowledge, but it’s him, it’s his responsibility,” Smith said.

The event, to be held Aug. 14-22, will be operated by Prince William Fairgrounds LLC, said fair manager Diane Burke.

The Fauquier County Fair also will return in July after a one-year hiatus because of the adjacent Central Sports Complex construction.
