Montgomery County Agricultural Fair

A 1940s project to get young people involved in agriculture and homemaking skills turned into one of the largest county fairs on the East Coast -- and it was started by kids. The first Montgomery County Agricultural Fair began as a one-day livestock show in 1949, sponsored by the county's 4-H Club, an organization for young people interested in farming. The fair was a way for farmers to show their best farm animals to each other and to get youth excited about farming, gardening, and homemaking skills such as preserving foods. Over the years, the fair has become a way to get a peek into farm life, as fewer people are involved in farming.

Directions : I-270 North, take Exit 11 (Montgomery Village/Fairgrounds); At next light make a right onto Route 355 South; make a right onto Perry Parkway; Fairground entrance will be on the left; 1/2 mile.
