More About Maryland State Fairgrounds
The fairgrounds are home to the Maryland State Fair, Timonium Racetrack, which offers live and simulcast horse racing events, a myriad of conventions, national entertainment events, book fairs, food festivals, animal exhibitions and competitions. On a weekly basis, a farmer's market sets up shop, offering everything from freshly cut flowers to homemade pickles, cakes and, of course, organic produce on Wednesdays from 2pm - 6pm.
In addition to hosting community and national events, the organizers of the Maryland State Fair offer two annual scholarships for children from the area, contributing to the community that has grown up around the grounds since its origins in 1831.
New events are always being added to the calendar, so check the website frequently for updates, tickets and opportunities to get involved.
