Traditional Fair Comes Back to Byrd Park

(SNOWHILL, Md.) – The Worcester county fair has been a tradition for more than 60 years.

Program Coordinator Cindy Morris says that documentation of the fair dates back to 1952, and that the fair might have started even before this year.

Different snacks, activities, and vendors are present. A business called Kenafrica is selling bags, woodwork, toys, and other goods that come all the way from Africa. The purses are woven with banana leaves. A new culinary business called Riverside Barbeque launches at the fair. Eastern Shore Kettle Corn and Chilly Dawgs are also here.

There’s a variety of animals at the fair, such as horses, pigs, cows, and sheep.

This event runs all weekend and every day has new events in store.

Saturday there is a children’s pie eating contest, a parade, a motorcycle show, and much more!

On Sunday, there’s pony rides, a church service, a Bark for Life event, sand art, agriculture activities, and other things the community can participate in, including an award ceremony!

Horse shows are being held on both Saturday and Sunday.

“It’s a family event,” Morris says. “We try very hard to make it something the whole family can enjoy.”
