This week is the 60th annual Cecil County Fair at the Fair Hill Fairgrounds in Elkton MD. The Fair's Rich History is described on the Fair's Website -
"The Cecil County Fair originated in 1953, when members of the Calvert, Cecilton and Colora Granges met over lunch to discuss the idea. The founding members were Robert Carrion, Bill Groff, Walt Mason, and Ray Mueller, Cecil County’s Agricultural Extension Agent at the time.
The group approached Mr. William DuPont, who owned the property known today as Fair Hill Natural Resources. Mr. DuPont welcomed the idea and was very supportive. In fact, he helped to share the expense of the fledgling fair throughout its first years, along with donating a grandstand and several outbuildings for displays and livestock.
In the years that have followed, the fair – and Cecil County – have changed dramatically. More than 70,000 people attend the 9-day fair. The fair celebrates our agricultural heritage, while providing hands-on learning opportunities for children and adults to explore today’s complex food chain – from animal to vegetable. Entertainment highlights include the ever-popular demolition derby, a professionally-sanctioned rodeo, tractor and truck pulls, plus countless competitions for 4-H youth and county residents to showcase their skills."
