Fun, but pricey. Enjoyed all the farm animals with my toddler. Had a bear and some owls this year too.

This is where I had my first job (just so we wouldn't have to pay parking and entry fee). Then I entered my art in the crafts fair (didn't have to pay parking or entry fee because I was a vender). Took my kids here and never thought about parking price ($10/car) or the entry fee (anything for the kids... More

My home state has one of the best state fairs in the country, and I was relieved to find a first-rate fair here in the crowded D.C. area. I take the children every year, spending nearly the whole time looking at the animals. It is very reasonably priced - kids are free and there's free parking at the Lakeforest Mall.... More

Last time we went it took 15 minutes to park. Then parking was directed by a 12 year old boy scout. Who crammed too may cars in a small space. I was driving a small vehicle and barely got out of my parking spot. Also the animal exhibits were snooty. They expected you to buy their animals but they did... More

I grew up in montgomery county and have been to the fair many many times. However, I have not been in over 10 years. I now have a young baby and decided to check it out with some friends (for some nostalgia). The actual carnival portion of the fair is full of scantily clad teenage girls. I do not know... More

It's fun for a family visit, tho not exciting -- livestock, produce, etc. It's worth going once or twice.

Having been raised in 4-H I have gone to many fairs as a competitor, visitor, Judge and for viewing animals. This is a nice large fair.
