Top 5 Things To Do At The Garrett County Fair

The Garrett County Fair occurs every year at the end of July during some of the best boating weather we will have all year. It is a must see time to visit Deep Creek Lake especially if you have little ones! Here is our Top 5 list of things you absolutely have to check out at the fairgrounds!

Top 5 Things You Must Do At The Garrett County Fair

Tour The Animal Barns With The Kids
From fuzzy bunnies to porky pigs, a walk through the barns will elicit lots of smiles from the little ones.  The animals are shown by local kids, many of whom are involved in 4-H.  Often times they are on hand to answer questions and share information about farm life.

Enjoy The Sunset From The Skywheel
A focal point of the fair, the Skywheel gives you the opportunity to take a break from the hustle-bustle of the fairgrounds below you.  You can enjoy beautiful views of Deep Creek Lake and Wisp Resort, so be sure to bring your camera!  The lake and mountains make a great backdrop for vacation photos! The evening is the perfect time to hop aboard and watch the sunset!

Excite The Senses At The Track Events
Events like mud bogs and tractor pulls capture the attention of kids and adults alike.  The big finale is the demolition derby on Saturday.  It’s the last night of the fair, so it’s important to go out with a BANG (along with a smash, a few crashes…you get the picture).  Pick your favorite car and cheer them on to the final round.

Eat Your Way Through The Fair
Food is hands down everyone's favorite thing at the Garrett County Fair.  Local organizations cook up lots of delicious treats and use this as an opportunity to raise funds that will support them throughout the year.  Plus, there are vendors offering deep fried Oreos, decadent funnel cakes, and gooey caramel apples. And who could forget to chow down on a deliciously fried classic corn dog?!  You'll also want to grab two local traditions while at the fair, Rotary Fries from the Oakland Rotary Club booth and the Hand-Dipped Ice Cream at the Farm Bureau booth (if you are feeling full, the chocolate milkshakes are some of the best!)

Excite Yourself On As Many Rides As You Can Stomach
From rides and games to sweets and treats, there are a million ways to make memories with your favorite people at the Garrett County Fair.  It is a classic summertime event that reminds you that you’re a kid at heart.
