Perdue Farms and Pohanka Automotive Group are proud to present the Wicomico County Fair as they celebrate Wicomico County’s 150th anniversary and 81 years of fair traditions. The weekend long event will extend from August 18th-20th at Winterplace Park in Salisbury, MD and is said to be the best three days of family fun activities that the area has to offer!
The Wicomico County Fair serves to showcase the importance of agriculture on the eastern Shore in providing a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.
“I am very proud to announce that in our first two years we exceeded all expectations in regards to attendance and programming,” said Wicomico County Fair chair, Zach Evans. “This year, we will continue in our efforts to highlight the lifestyle and culture here on the Lower Eastern Shore, as well as showcasing local products and businesses in Wicomico County.”
The festivities will include a live performance by well-known country music singer Jimmy Charles, who made his debut on the Season 9 of American Idol.
Other events throughout the fair include performances by MD High School Rodeo, multiple livestock showings and car shows, educational poultry exhibits, brilliant fireworks, and several competitions including ever popular Mason-Dixon Deputies sanctioned mounted shooting competition.
The fun doesn’t stop there either! Come prepared for an action packed carnival, various equestrian activities, a five-foot fry pan, antique tractor pulls, and of course the traditional rides and amusements all sponsored by Wicomico County.
