Events & Entertainment

Our 2023 Entertainment was:

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.
