Look for the 2015 St. Mary’s County Fair Catalog of Classes in the Enterprise Newspaper Friday July 31
The St. Mary’s County Fair is produced by the St. Mary’s County Fair Association each September during the third weekend after Labor Day. Typically over 1000 people will enter their handiwork in the competitions which include livestock, home arts, farm and garden, arts and crafts, and 4-H departments. Most exhibits are judged on Thursday morning and the Fair is open for general viewing on Thursday afternoon. Some contests, such as the speech contest and judging of livestock, occur during the Fair. Premium moneys, ribbons, and trophies are awarded to the winning exhibits.
