What’s your favorite part of the county fair?

Is it the midway with its bright lights and whirling rides? The food vendors with deep-fried everything and French fries that are to die for?

Perhaps you love the exhibit buildings where your friends and neighbors have shared their talents and skills. Or, maybe it’s the animals and the chance to get up close and personal with cows, sheep, chickens, and other critters.

Whatever you like best, the county fair is sure to be fun for whole family! Now that Labor Day Weekend is just a week away, county fair season is right around the corner for those of us living in Southern Maryland.

Whether you’re planning to enter one of the competitions or are just going to fun, you’ll find something for everyone at your county fair! Mark your calendars for these dates.
