Fairlea, WV (West Virginia), is a community in Greenbrier County and the home of the State Fair of West Virginia. The community takes its name from its fairgrounds, meadows that were first home to the Greenbrier County Fair. "Lea" is a Middle English term for a grassland. The demand for lodging and dining increases during the State Fair in late summer, though traffic in Fairlea is then accommodated by dual-lane highways that flank the fairground.
