The Wicomico Farm & Home Show is proud to announce the 2017 Wicomico
County Fair being held August 18th – August 20th at Winterplace Park.
Celebrating 81 years of fair traditions, there will be something for
everyone at the three-day event presented by Perdue Farms and Toyota.
The Wicomico County Fair serves to showcase the importance of
agriculture on the Eastern Shore in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.
The three-day fair events will include livestock showings, carnival, MD
High School Rodeo, educational poultry exhibits, fireworks, antique
tractor pulls, giant fry pan, car shows, live entertainment,
competitions, rides and amusements, equestrian activities and the
Mason-Dixon Deputies sanctioned mounted shooting competition.
2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Wicomico County, and for its
sesquicentennial occasion, Wicomico County Parks & Recreation has
partnered with the Fair to bring the “Parade of Towns,” which will take
place on Saturday at 1:50pm. The County’s municipalities and other
regions will represent their areas in the parade. Weekend entertainment
sponsored by Wicomico County will include a performance by national
country music act Jimmy Charles.
“I am very proud to announce that in our first two years we exceeded all
expectations in regards to attendance and programming,” Zach Evans,
Wicomico County Fair chair said. “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. We would also like to thank our numerous partners including but not limited to the Wicomico County Council, University of MD Extension,
Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Salisbury.”
