Day 186: The Calvert County Fair Opens September 28 – October 2, 2011

The 2011 Calvert County Fair is almost here!  The Calvert Fair wraps up the fair season here in Southern Maryland, so this is your last chance to enjoy all the cotton candy, funnel cakes and deep fried Twinkies you can eat!

This will be the 125th edition of the fair, and it’s also one of my favorites (second only to Charles County, naturally!).  Admission is $5 per person, free for kids under 12.  Here’s a full list of events and directions below:
