Events & Entertainment

In 2021 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

Jason Anderson is an ornamental blacksmith specializing in functional fabrication work.
In 2013 his passion for metal art began at a local artisan’s workshop. It grew from there as he dove into a mentorship that has given him lifelong friendships.
His business, JHA Works, has been in operation since 2017 and continues to grow month over month as he shares his passion with his clients. His goal in life is to bring artistic beauty and unique design to blacksmithing, and in everyday functionality.

Great Lakes Timber Show

Bruce Belanger has never won a lumberjack competition but that does not prevent the founder of the Great Lakes Timber Show from introducing
himself as the current and five-time trystate champion. He has tried in every state and hasn’t won a darn thing although he thinks it helps to have a title to get hired.
The Escamaba, MI native began logrolling when he was 17 years old. He worked with the Hank Peters Lumberjack Show for many years before beginning the Great Lakes Timber Show 20 years ago.
The lumberjack show features chainsaw carving, axe throwing, horizontalwood chopping, two-man crosscut sawing, log rolling and loads of humor.
