It’s just not summer without a visit to a county fair. Even (or maybe especially) for city slickers, a trip to the county fair is a reminder of all that’s wholesome, joyous, and a little bit dirt-stained. It’s a perfect place to take the kids for the day—with all manner of livestock there for the ogling and petting. The whole family can watch (or take part in) agriculture-related competitions—one of the grand traditions of any county fair thanks to 4H. If you don’t exactly have a prized hog you’ll be showing, or if your backyard zucchini doesn’t look like it’s going to tip the scales as a record breaker, you can always win at the cake auction—or PP&B Bingo.
The Baltimore County Fair is presented (of course) by the good folks at 4H. This year’s fair will feature all the usual events, as well as Agro-Land, a place where you can learn all about where your food comes from, how it’s grown, and how it gets from the ground to your plate. There will be hands-on activities for the whole family, so the kids can get a little sampling of the work that goes into growing their favorite eats. There will also be plenty of food trucks on hand, as well as local crafters, artists, and artisans of all sorts. So throw those city kids in the car and bring them out to the fairgrounds for a day of country inspired old-fashioned fun.
The Baltimore County Fair from 4H takes place July 10-12 from 10am-10pm. It will be held at the Maryland State Fair Grounds. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.baltimorecounty4hfair.org.
