Events & Entertainment

In 2018 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.

Hot Dog Pig Races

Dachshunds in hot dog bun costumes and racing pigs!
These awkward, but cute and cuddly racing animals fascinate spectators. Real crowd pleasers,
these natural comedians bolt from the starting gate and race around the track snorting and
squealing, stubby legs churning and curly tails sailing along behind.

Danny Grant

Growing up as a 2nd generation entertainer, Danny was taught many performing skills and he has used these to create a fantastic show of his own. Available for Stage, Street, or Strolling Shows, Danny Grant’s Cowboy Circus features Family- Friendly Comedy, Cowboy Tricks, Juggling, Guitar Pickin’, Audience Participation and more, and makes up one of the best & exciting new acts in the entertainment industry.
