Prince George's County Fair...                ...The Oldest Running Maryland Fair

The Prince George's County Fair began in 1842 as a friendly gathering for local farmers to showcase their produce and livestock and have a little fun. We have the distinction of being the oldest running Fair in Maryland!

Though it started out as mostly livestock and field crops, eventually it came to include women's arts as well, with competitions for the best jams, jellies, canned goods, pies, breads, cookies, clothing, quilts, and handicrafts. It was (and is) quite an honor to be deemed the best in the County!

Did you know we still hold competitions in all these areas, plus photography, fine-arts, woodworking, basket making, flower arranging, and more? The Open Class area accepts entries from any of the 5 Southern Maryland Counties and also from our District of Columbia neighbors. There's no charge to enter your work, and the top three winners in each class receive a ribbon and a small monetary award. For more information on specific entry areas, check out the Open Class Entries link located at the top!

In addition to the competitions in Open Class and 4-H, the Fair is lots of fun! This year we will be having a carnival with many rides and more games for both younger and older Fair goers. For an idea of what you can expect to see at the Fair, check out the Schedule and Entertainment links.

The Fair has seen its share of difficulties and has sometimes struggled to survive. This is where you come in -- the Fair simply cannot do without you! We need you to come visit, bring your family and friends, have a good time, maybe enter something in the Open Class competition, and most importantly come back year after year! We are also looking for volunteers to help during the Fair - go to the Volunteer To Help link. If you are really interested, you could even join the Fair Association as a board member - go to the Join The Fair Board link to see how!
