Events & Entertainment

In 2019 every day at the Fair see:

Team Uprooted

Team Uprooted: Marty Long has been coming to the Cecil County Fair for several years, his extreme chainsaw carving show, “Team Uprooted”, never fails to draw a crowd. Marty began his carving career in 1992 with “Fear No Ice” an ice carving company and he competed on the N.I.C.A. competition circuit. In 2000 he tried his hand at woodcarving and then joined “Masters of the Chainsaw”. During a forty five-minute show, from behind protective netting, onlookers will observe an original and captivating high-energy performance. With chain saw roaring and chips flying, Marty’s precision and skill quickly transforms a three-foot tall log into a true work of art. Nearly every show will result with a chainsaw carving being produced from start to finish, with as many as four chainsaw carvings per day. Two days during the fair we auction off the carvings at a live auction, and also raffle off several pieces.

Mobile Glass Studio

Ryan Gothrup, of Mobile Glass Studios, has been producing one of a kind glass objects for twenty years. Gothrup received his B.F.A. degree from Kent State University and received his M.F.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University. He exhibits and sells his glass across the country. Gothrup Glass exemplifies a combination of Italian, Swedish, and German techniques with an American twist.

Blacksmith

David Kauffman has been working with metal for over 40 years and has been practicing blacksmithing for 13 years.
In his words:
“The fascination with blacksmith work is simple…
You start with a fire, a hammer, a piece of steel, and an idea and turn all that into a tangible item that can be held in your hand, used as a tool, or put up as a piece of art.
It is magical.
I have had the pleasure of working with many great smiths and have had the opportunity to work on many varied projects over the years.
And, I can honestly say that I am old enough to have worked on Noah’s Ark.
Stop by and ask me how that can be.”

Victoria Circus

Founded in 2003 by Walter and Victoria Murcia, Victoria Circus is the product of a long line of circus history and experience. Before starting their own show, they performed on several different circuses and shows gaining prestige not only in the US but also worldwide.
Today the tradition continues with sons Alexander and Antony Murcia. Victoria circus provides some of the best circus and thrill show acts available today. Featuring specialty Globe of Death and High Wire experience among other ground acts and clown gags.
