Worcester County Fair Returns to Snow Hill August 9-11

The Worcester County Fair returns to Snow Hill August 9 – 11, 2024. Now under the management of Worcester County Recreation and Parks (WCRP), the fair will take place at John Walter Smith Park at 6022 Public Landing Road, adjacent to the Worcester County Recreation Center.

“With decades of experience in event management, WCRP professionals are thrilled to lead this year’s fair, which promises to include a vibrant revival of community activities to attract families and individuals of all ages,” said Brianna Dix, the Worcester County Tourism and Economic Development advertising and destination marketing specialist. “With a diverse lineup of performances, demonstrations, and activities spanning all three days, we’re urging residents and visitors alike to save the date and to join us for the festivities.”

Fair hours will be Friday from 4 to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The kids’ area will feature crafts, inflatable jump houses, and carnival games provided by the Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department. The main stage will host live entertainment, including a kickoff performance by Jimmy Charles on Friday evening, and performances by Eric Tobiassen and the Homeschool Dropouts. Attendees are encouraged to explore the fairgrounds, including the indoor exhibits by the Maryland 4H Extension office, which will be housed at the Worcester County Recreation Center.

“Our office encourages visitors to also explore other family friendly events, such as the Blessing of the Combines in Snow Hill on Saturday, August 3, and the Great Pocomoke Fair in Pocomoke City from August 9-11,” Dix said.

WCRP eagerly invites farm families and children to participate in the fair's livestock events or 4H craft categories. The entry forms will soon be available to the public, with all premium costs being increased.
