Isle of Wight County took a few days to celebrate its agricultural heritage and close-knit community spirit by hosting the Isle of Wight County Fair. This year’s fair, "Country Nights, Carnival Lights," featured nationally recognized country entertainment, exciting ground acts, fair food, numerous competitions and more.

In 1998, Wat Pasantidhamma, a Thai Buddhist temple, was founded in a wooded area in Carrollton. It continues to be a place where buddhists and monks from all over the nation come to pray and meditate.

 

The Smithfield Farmers Market is a weekly community event that draws visitors from near and far to enjoy vendors, crafts, and the love of a small town feel! 

 

Twice a month, the Smithfield Lions Club rolls back the clock with a classic car Cruz-In, where each car has a story to tell.
