EASTON — The Talbot County Fair, celebrating its 36th year July 11 to 13, is calling all talented crafters, bakers, sewers, woodworkers and gardeners to enter their prized projects and works made throughout the year for the fair’s judging competitions.

Each year, hundreds of entries, from apple pies to zucchini squash, come to the fairgrounds at the Talbot Agriculture and Education Center. Local artisans work diligently all year and bring their creations the fair to see how they measure up against one another.

“It’s really more a camaraderie then a competition,” said Linda Brown, a fair volunteer who manages the hundreds of indoor exhibits. “Ribbons are awarded but so many exhibitors participate to learn what they can do to improve their skills for next year.”

While the actual entries don’t need to be ready until the day before the fair begins, exhibitors need to register for any entries they plan to bring by June 14.

A link to the fair’s online registration system is at the fair’s homepage, talbotcountyfair.org.

This year’s fair is set for July 11-13 at the Talbot Agriculture and Education Center, 10659 Hiners Lane, Easton. Admission to the fair is free. Parking is $5 per vehicle to benefit the Ag Center.

For more information, contact the fair at 410-822-8007 or info@talbotcountyfair.org.

The Talbot County Fair is a family-oriented all-volunteer event and fundraiser for the Talbot Agriculture and Education Center, which exists to strengthen the culture of rural Talbot County. The fair and ag center, provides a safe, convenient and economical gathering place for citizens of all ages and backgrounds to showcase and learn from our agricultural heritage.
