In just under 10 days, a favorite statewide celebration of the end of summer returns to the Maryland State Fairgrounds. The Maryland State Fair is back for its 141st edition beginning Aug. 25, and like everything in the pandemic era, it’s less like the before times and more like, well, something new. The fanfare is pretty much the same, with flashy carnival midway rides and live horse racing and those adorable 4-H contestants with their sweet, prized pigs. The details are a little different. You’ll still be able to head to the brew garden to drown your tears at giving up on a career as a lumberjack.
