Welcome To Fairview Farm Events
Welcome to Fairview Farm Events, central Virginia's largest destination weekend venue where accommodations, catering, entertainment, event planner and more are included for your special weekend, Sunday or weekday event. We have created packages where we focus on the details so you can focus on having the most memorable weekend of your life.
A weekend at Fairview Farm Events includes so much and is a superior value to most Saturday only area venues. There are two styles of Weekend Destination-the Basic Inclusive Weekend where we include almost everything and the All-Inclusive where three properties will be included for up to 37 guests and many other bonus items like beer/wine will be included for four hours for 100 guests and discounted beyond 100 and we waive the venue fee up to 175 guests and more!
Family owned for 100 years, the dairy farm was transformed in 2014, into an exclusive wedding and event venue with the completion of the ADA two story compliant rustic chic heated and air conditioned cedar barn venue. A large pavilion with chandeliers, bistro lighting, rustic cocktail and seating areas is also included for your event weekend. Fairview Farm accommodates up to 245 guests and your wedding is the only onsite event.

We treat our couples very special at Fairview Farm and create a fun relaxing memorable country experience from the moment they arrive until they depart. Our farm is committed to not "rushing" your special weekend which is why we limit our availability for events to maximize your experience.
Farview Farm can accommodate two nights for either seventeen guests with our basic package and up to thirty seven guests on site for the bridal party and family for the All-inclusive wedding weekend with the addition of the Blanton waterfront cottage where the bridal party can fish the morning of the wedding or golf at a nearby golf course.
A vintage 1940's hay barn on property has been converted into an amazing 2000 sqaure foot retro chic loft (sleeps up to ten) as an option. We believe that families and friends who have a weekend stay will feel right at home and have an affordable memory of a lifetime, rather than a fleeting moment.
Accommodations beyond our thirty seven guest options on property are fifteen minutes away, as there is a beautiful VA state park called Bear Creek Lake on a thirty acre lake with a private six bedroom lodge and up to thirteen cottages (sleeping six) starting at $119 a night. The farm has also partnered with multiple hotels in the nearby Richmond area as well as extremely reasonable guest transportation options. We have preferred in-expensive transportation options for shuttles and Uber does service our venue. Our large countyside venue is situated in the rolling hills of central VA and is just one hour from RIC.
Named for its magnificent views of the scenic farmlands of Virginia, Fairview Farm provides just the right mixture of chic country southern charm with many modern comforts. Fairview has gorgeous sunsets with views of the distant Lynchburg mountain range and adjacent to Blenheim, a national historic landmark family farm. There is a picturesque large pond with fountain, gazebo and large dock, as well as vintage barns and one of the largest and oldest poplar trees in Virginia with an old fashioned swing for special photos. Fairview Farm's one hundred and fifteen acre estate has only had three owners since 1733, as part of a charter grant of King George, to Wiliam Mayo, the surveyor of the time. It operated as a dairy farm for over sixty years and is still farmed today for crops for Blenheim's adjacent cattle farm.
There are many props and extras included such as a 1951 F-1 completely restored red Ford pickup to an old red tractor. Our guests say we have considered every detail and we hope you will agree. Follow us on Pinterest under our Free Props Board and Instagram.
