Celebrating its 66th Anniversary, the Anne Arundel County Fair (AACF) 2018 will bring you and your family down to earth. You and your loved ones will have loads of country fun from September 12 to 16, 2018, just minutes away from Annapolis.
If you love watching friendly competition, you will find it at this fair, which features contests like hog calling, pig races, tractor pulling, and watermelon eating.
Booths will also be hawking homemade wine, home-brewed beer, handcrafted furniture, and unique Christmas decorations for those who like getting ready for the holidays a little early.
Got kids? They will have the time of their lives on the fair’s amusement rides, interactive car racing, an illusionist show, and 4H Club animals. They will also love watching the Arundel’s Got Teen Talent competition held on Thursday, September 13 at 6 p.m.
Mrs. Lee of Annapolis started putting AACF together in early 1952. The Maryland State Fair Board eventually gave their approval, and the Anne Arundel County Fair debuted at the old Labrot Race Track in September.
The following year, the fair moved to Sandy Point State Park, which was its beach home for 25 years. In 1984, AACF made Crownsville its permanent location.
In December 1990, Uncle Harve, the giant lumberjack modeled after Paul Bunyan, made his way off the Baldwin Service Center roof after standing sentinel for about 15 years.
In April 1991, the Baldwin family allowed Uncle Harve to spend his golden years at the Anne Arundel County Fair, where the 20-foot statue now greets visitors with a huge welcome sign.
The 66th Annual Anne Arundel County Fair (AACF) will be held in Crownsville, Maryland from Wednesday, September 12 to Sunday, September 16, 2018. The fair faithfully provides family fun in the countryside year after year.
