Charles Country Fair is an annual fair held at the Charles County Fairground in La Plata. This is a great time of year for kids and adults. The fair started September 17th and ended September 20th. This year the fair celebrated 353 years of existence.  Attendees can experience pig races, livestock, arts & crafts, games, carnival rides, food, pony rides, live entertainment and so much more. Located on 30 acres, this is a great place to bring the family, or to just hang out with some friends.

All Charles County Public Schools had a day off, on Friday, September 18, for the fair. Lauryn Reid (18′) said about the event, “The fair was really fun. I went Friday and Saturday with my friends and I loved it, can’t wait for next year.” Renaya Tuckson (16′) added, “The fair was a great time. I got to hang out with my friends, the food was good and it was a nice community event.”
