One of the best parts of summer at Deep Creek Lake is the annual Garrett County Agricultural Fair. This summer is the 61st year the fair has taken place. It will be held from July 29 through August 5, 2017. Reithoffer Shows is back for their 6th year and has some amazing rides awaiting you. Antique tractors and farm equipment will also be on display throughout the week.
