Fauquier County is located in the Piedmont region of rural Virginia, about an hour from Washington D.C., and is named after Francis Fauquier, a lieutenant and acting governor of the Virginia Colony in the 18th century. Steeped in equestrian tradition, it is today renowned as the heart of hunt and wine country. Its residents are equestrians, winery lovers and outdoors enthusiasts. The county has three incorporated towns – The Plains, Warrenton and Remington – and many small, historic villages. Residents are served by a thriving school system and three branch libraries.
The Plains is home to the Great Meadow events center, which hosts point-to-point races, horse shows and jumping competitions, as well as polo matches every weekend during the spring and summer. The Virginia Gold Cup (in May) and the International Gold Cup (in October) are prestigious steeplechase events that draw tens of thousands of visitors to the county. In Warrenton, the Warrenton Horse Show is a youth-run event that has been put on for more than 100 years. Two dozen wineries in the county provide an opportunity for visitors to relax and enjoy bucolic views and locally made wine. Most vineyards host wine-tastings and other events, and the Virginia Wine Festival is held in September. The area’s rich Civil War history can be experienced through several different self-driven tours, guided tours, museums, and historical trail markers. Children and adults alike are drawn to the Flying Circus in southern Fauquier, which presents a wing-walking airshow every Sunday afternoon. Other annual events, like the Scottish Games and Festival, Evening Under the Stars and First Night in Warrenton, dot the annual calendar.
