As the week went on, each day had events for everyone to attend. From educational activities for all ages to sipping on some beer, wine or mixed drinks made right here in Frederick County. And don’t forget the barns that were filled with animals that the youth get ready all year to showcase during the fair. It’s the biggest classroom to learn all things about Agriculture. The week ended with the youth livestock sale where the top seller brought the record high of $20,000.
Congratulations to all the exhibitors, youth, fair staff, volunteers and sponsors for putting on an awesome week at The Great Frederick Fair. Let the countdown to next year begin.
