Wicomico County Fair begins Aug. 14

The new Wicomico County Fair is just days away.

The Wicomico Farm & Home Show and the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce are proud to present the Wicomico County Fair being held Aug. 14-16 at Winterplace Park.

Previously known as the Wicomico Farm & Home Show, there will be something for everyone with live entertainment, food, free kids activities and more.

Admission and parking are free.

It was in early 2015 when the Wicomico Farm and Home Show and the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce decided to join forces to create the Wicomico County Fair. The Farm & Home Show was looking to attract a broader audience and add new elements to their 78-year-old event. SACC was exploring how to continue the tradition of the Delmarva Chicken Festival after the event had been retired.

Combining elements from both events was the answer that would assist in promoting agriculture in Wicomico County and more specifically, the poultry industry.  By developing the partnership, the groups are able to continue long-standing traditions that have a combined 143-year history.

The fair will include elements from both events including livestock exhibits, the 5ft fry pan, educational poultry exhibits, antique tractor pulls, farmers market, carnival, competitions, live entertainment, car, motorcycle and jeep shows, petting zoo and much more.

The Wicomico County Fair is sponsored by Gateway Subaru, Hebron Savings Bank, Salisbury Independent, Q105, Froggy 99.9, NAPA Auto Parts, NAPA Auto Care Center, Pete Richardson Auction Sales and Wilgus Insurance.
