Head to Timonium Fairgrounds beginning THIS FRIDAY for the Maryland State Fair! You have from August 26th until September 5th to check out this late summer tradition affectionately referred to it as “The 11 Best Days of Summer!”

Up to 500,000 people come out to the fairgrounds in Timonium for agriculture exhibitions and shows, carnival rides, concerts, thoroughbred horse racing and homegrown food. Thousands of 4-H and Future Farmers of America members compete in shows and demonstrations. Other contests include the Miss Maryland Agriculture competition, a chili championship and an animal costume contest. Must-see attractions include J Bar W Ranch Battle of the Beasts Rodeo, the Swifty Swine Racing and Swimming Pig Show and the Birthing Center. The fair regularly adds new attractions and this year features concerts from Selena Gomez & The Scene,  Blake Shelton, and Baltimore natives All Time Low!
