Maryland Agricultural Resource Council

Family Farm Day 2019

Family Farm Day is a celebration of Maryland's vibrant agricultural past, present, and future featuring a ton of family fun activities to help support the Maryland Agricultural Resource Council (MARC)! Family Farm Day will be held at the Baltimore County Ag Center at 1114 Shawan Rd, Cockeysville on Saturday, September 28, 2019 from 10 AM- 5 PM. All proceeds will go to support MARC's ongoing educational activities at the Baltimore County Ag Center.

The tree-lined allée will host several food trucks, ice cream, educational vendors, as well as arts/crafts vendors selling their local homemade products and art. Agricultural-themed demonstrations will be going on throughout the day featuring pony rides, tractor rides, beekeeping, and horse demonstrations. Children's activities include pumpkin decorating, face painting, farm Olympics and apple slingshot! Plus, we will have bands performing throughout the day!

In order for all of these activities to go smoothly, we're looking for volunteers to help us prepare and work throughout the day. The majority of the set up will be done before the event on Friday and Saturday morning 7am-10am. Cleanup will be on Sunday. We appreciate your help and look forward to making Family Farm Day a success!

Please consider volunteering for a two or three hour slot. ALL VOLUNTEERS RECEIVE COMPLIMENTARY ENTRY TO THE EVENT FOR THEMSELVES AND WHOMEVER THEY CAN PACK INTO A CAR. All volunteers must also submit a Baltimore County Volunteer background check, this is free and will only take a few minutes.
