Want to win free tickets to the Harford County Farm Fair?

Help Ella the Cow find her way to the Farm Fair!

She's going to be traveling all over the county, so you need to check the Farm Fair's Facebook page for her location every week. When you find Ella, take a photo with her – a "selfie" is great! Post the photo to your Facebook wall and tag the Farm Fair and her location. You will then be entered to win 4 Farm Fair admission tickets and a Chick-fil-A prize pack. A winner will be drawn every week until the fair!

From the Board of Directors

Welcome to the 28th Annual Farm Fair!

The 28th Annual Harford County Farm Fair will be held from Thursday, July 30 through Sunday, August 2, 2015. Since the first Harford County Farm Fair was held in 1988, this annual event has been held at the Harford County Equestrian Center, which is publicly owned by the Harford County Government and is part of the Heavenly Waters Park administered by the County Department of Parks and Recreation and the volunteer Equestrian Center Recreation Council.

The mission of the Harford County Farm Fair is to promote Harford County’s agricultural heritage and encourage youth involvement in agricultural activities, particularly through 4-H, FFA, and the Ag Magnet Program in Harford County Public Schools. We provide educational displays showing how agriculture is a part of our daily lives and about the conservation of natural resources. New this year will be the Artisan's Villiage, with demonstrations provided by various artists and crafters and the Master Gardeners.

The Farm Fair begins on Thursday, July 30 at 7:30 a.m. with the Prayer Breakfast. From opening on Thursday morning until closing on Sunday evening, the Farm Fair offers something for everyone to enjoy! There will be Carnival rides every day, and Kidway will again offer a myriad of free games, entertainment, and activities for children, including a Straw Maze and inflatables like the Moon Bounce. There will be Racing Pigs and Climbing Goats. There will be an Antique Tractor Pull on Thursday evening, and the Lucas Oil Truck and Tractor Pulls on both Friday and Saturday evenings. Live on the Entertainment Stage will be a variety of local performers. And returning to the Farm Fair will be the Rodeo on Sunday afternoon.

The Farm Fair allows local residents to exhibit their home-grown vegetables and agricultural products, baked goods, crafts and needlework, photographs and artwork. We provide the opportunity for all ages to compete in pie and watermelon eating contests and a Spelling Bee. There are contests for Farm Babies and for Miss Harford County Farm Bureau. The Farm Fair Talent Contest will be held on Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1. Featured on Sunday, August 2 in the Pavillion will be the Seasonal Sensations Culinary Competition and the Buy Local! Eat Local! Event. The Fresh Baked Peach Pie Contest will also be held on Sunday afternoon. There are many ways for Harford Countians to share their skills and talents!

The Harford County Farm Fair Board of Directors wishes to thank the many, many volunteers, corporate sponsors, participating vendors, and especially Harford County Government for their enthusiastic support and encouragement over the years. It is because of our volunteers and sponsors that we are able to continue to provide such a successful and family-oriented community event.

We invite you to attend and enjoy the 28th Annual Harford County Farm Fair and celebrate with us the outstanding achievements of the agricultural community.

Sincerely,
The Board of Directors of the Harford County Farm Fair, Inc.
