This weekend thankfully temperatures will not be in the 100s, because its time for the Harford County Farm Fair! From July 28th to July 30th at 608 North Tollgate Road in Bel Air, Maryland.
This year, the Farm Fair held two events to kick-off Farm Fair week. On Sunday morning, July 24 at 8:00 AM, there was a 5K Run. Then at the fairgrounds on Sunday, July 24 from 3:00 to 7:00 PM people gathered for the 1st Annual Eat Local! Buy Local! Farm Fair Food & Wine Fiesta and Farmer’s Market.
The Farm Fair allows local residents to exhibit their home-grown vegetables and agricultural products, baked goods, crafts and needlework, photographs and artwork. All ages to can compete in pie and watermelon eating and a spelling bee. And then Kidway offers a myriad of games, entertainment, and activities for children. Be sure to see the Lone Ranger and his horse Silver, the ever-popular Dock Dogs, and the Truck and Tractor Pulls (antique and modern). There’s something happening all the time for everybody to enjoy!

The shuttle buses begin running at 8:00 AM and will maintain continuous service until the fair closes and the last passenger has been transported.
