Fantastic Fairs

It’s county fair season, that magical time of year again when Maryland’s counties roll out the roller coasters, gussy up their prize pigs, and search for exciting new foods to fry on a stick. Every weekend in August our counties will be celebrating — why not try to hit ‘em all — then cap off the summer with the Maryland State Fair? Check out our county fair page to plan your August adventure.

Wet and Wild Fun on the Water

Set sail for the Governor’s Cup, the bay’s biggest regatta, head out to the Atlantic Canyons during the White Marlin Open, take in the splendor of a dragon boat fleet on the Patuxent, or experience the exhilaration of waterslides under the stars. Don’t miss our Wet and Wild Fun on the Water page, because when comes to aquatic adventures, there’s always more in Maryland.

Get your Motor Runnin'

Maryland puts the pedal down for fun with car, truck, and even airplane shows every weekend this month. When it comes to vintage planes, classic cars, steam-powered big rigs, and even top-fuel lawn mowers, Maryland has got gearheads covered with these tire-smoking, sizzling-summer hot rod events.

Take a Flight of...

Knights, pirates, wizards and witches — is this Sparta? Nope, this is Maryland! From the Maryland Renaissance Festival and Medieval Times to SpartaCon and the swashbuckling skullduggery of the pirates and wenches of Rock Hall, we’ve got all the events to take your August weekends on a fantastic flight of fantasy.

Free Films in the Free State

With so much to do in Maryland this August, you’ll need a moment to relax, and there’s no better way to end a day of Maryland adventure than a free outdoor film. From the mountains to the sea, Marylanders love movies, so you’re never far from a great outdoor cinema experience. So grab a blanket and your besties, pack up the cooler and pick one of these great summer flicks.
