Westminster Things to Do: 15 reviews and 36 photos
Every summer the youth of Carroll County gather at the Carroll County Agricultural Center in Westminster to show off the best of their livestock, crafts, produce, fine arts, and technology. Carroll County has a lot of rural farmland and this is a great showcase for what is some of the best the county has to offer. The event is usually held for a week at the end of July into early August.
There are lots of things to do for those who have not entered anything in the fair – exhibits, animals shows, vendors, entertainment, a tractor pull, demolition derby, chain saw carver, square dancing, and the ever popular racing pigs! Check out the website closer to the summer to get the current schedule for the upcoming fair.
You can walk around the new building and look at the cows, goats, sheep, and other livestock before visiting the chickens and ducks in the outbuilding. Other buildings house craft competitions and other exhibits. Spread around the fair grounds are displays for the annual themed competition that organizations participate in. There are lots of food vendors when you get hungry serving good home cooked farm foods as well as traditional favorite fair-type snacks.
Parking is easy – just park in the large grassy lot next to the fair. The Agricultural Center is next to the Carroll County Farm Museum, near the hospital.
We like to bring out of town guests to the fair – it is something a bit different for those city folk that may not get the chance to see cows and chickens too often!
