2009 Montgomery County Agricultural Fair – August 14th – 22nd

2009 Montgomery County Agricultural Fair – August 14th – 22nd

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to update Gaithersburg Local with more news concerning Gaithersburg, Maryland, but what better to return with than info about the 61st Annual Montgomery County Agricultural Fair!

As always, the Montgomery County Fair will be held at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Gaithersburg, and will feature rides, farm animals, musical performances, crafts, and so much more. There will of course be the Tractor Pull, Demolition Derby, and monster trucks as part of the entertainment going on in the GrandStand area of the fairgrounds. Don’t forget to check out all the local vendors as well!

Prices for admission into the fairgrounds are as follows:

General Admission (8 and up) – $8.00
Children (2-7) – $3.00
Kids (Under 2)  -FREE
FREE same-day re-entry with hand stamping at the gate.

$5 Parking Fee or Free Shuttle from Lakeforest Mall Parking Lot

Most people go for the rides, at least I do, and you can get a All-You-Can-Ride wristband for only $9.95 on Friday, August 14th only,  at the Guest Ticket Stations. It is unclear if this is for a day, or the span of the fair.

There are bound to be lots of families during the day, and on August 17th, kids under 12 get in for free from 12-4PM. So parents, if you want to take the kids out, this is the day to do it.

For more information see their Media Guide and 2009 Catalog. Everything you need to know can be found in these 2 pdf’s or on their website, which also has this lovely video from last year…
