We love the County Fair! From the animals to the rides and carnival games, it’s one of our favorite times of year. (And don’t get us started on the food.)

But the main reason the Department of Environmental Protection loves the County Fair is that it gives us the opportunity to engage and talk with thousands of County residents over the course of a single week! We get to hear from you, exchange ideas and share what programs we have available for you.


Fun at the Fair

The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair offers a great opportunity to have fun and learn. This year, the Fair is August 10th-18th. Where else can you see pig races, Chainsaw Carver demonstrations, learn all about bees, buy award winning bake goods, and visit educational booths?  As a bonus you can visit us!

The DEP Tent

This year, DEP will have one tent with all the information about our Department under the same roof – learn about recycling, energy, your watershed, trees, and composting in one spot!

  • Pick up a compost bin
  • Ask a recycling question  (or answer one for a prize!)
  • Learn how we clean our waters with rain gardens and bioretentions
  • Spin the “green” wheel for prizes
  • Discover our RainScapes, Tree Montgomery, and energy programs
  • Learn about litter prevention
  • Pick up resources and informational tools
