Maryland State Fair heralds the state’s changing farm landscape

August 23, 2023

Close to 600,000 people are expected to attend the Maryland State Fair that opens Thursday and runs for three consecutive weekends in Timonium wrapping up Sunday, Sept. 10. There will be the usual crowd-pleasing assortment of rides and games, musical acts, funnel cake and fried-pretty-much-everything. But as families flock to this traditional end-of-summer event, Maryland Agriculture Secretary Kevin M. Atticks hopes that many of these visitors, especially those who wouldn’t know a seed drill from a sprayer or a baler from a harrow, will take some time to learn about Maryland farming before they dash off to the Ferris wheel, the milk bottle toss or the All Time Low concert.
