The St. Mary’s County Fair is produced by the all volunteer 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. Funding support for ribbons and premiums is provided by the Maryland Agricultural Fair Board.

The Fair Association builds, maintains, and manages the fairground the year around. All money raised by the County Fair event are used to fund the fairground expenses.
