You know it is fall in Southern Maryland when the roadside signs advertising county fairs appear. From now through early October, there’s a fair every weekend – sometimes two!
Each county fair showcases the best that county has to offer in agriculture, arts and crafts, flowers, produce, and more. There will be livestock displays and judging every day at all three local county fairs plus demonstrations, local vendors and organizations, food, and more.
And don’t forget the midway! Carnival rides and games hold something fun for young and old.
What will you find at your county’s fair? Mark your calendars now and plan to attend at least one local fair this fall.
