Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill to Host Fresh Food Fest and Beer, Wine & Spirits Showcase

FAIR HILL, Md.--The Maryland 5*, one of only two 5 Star three-day events in the United States, and just the seventh worldwide, will also feature great shopping, demonstrations, live music, kids activities and the Maryland 5 Star Fresh Food Fest

MD 5 Tickets are now available for two not-to-be-missed events being held alongside the world-class equestrian competition at the 2021 Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill, Oct.14-17 at the newly constructed Fair Hill Special Event Zone in Elkton, Maryland.

The Maryland event’s prestigious 5 Star (CCI5*) designation is the pinnacle of the Olympic sport of Eventing, often described as an equestrian triathlon.

In addition to the CCI5*-L, the event will feature a CCI3*-L, which is serving as the USEF CCI3*-L Eventing National Championship, and The Dutta Corp. USEA Young Event Horse East Coast Championships.

The four days of Eventing competition will feature Dressage on Thursday and Friday, Cross-Country on Saturday and Show Jumping on Sunday.

The event will also feature great shopping, demonstrations, live music, kids activities and the Maryland 5 Star Fresh Food Fest on Sunday, Oct. 17, 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., with seasonal fruits and vegetables, dairy products, meats and seafoods, and much more!


THERE WILL also be an event for adults only – the Maryland 5 Star Beer, Wine & Spirits Showcase Powered by Grow & Fortify on Saturday, Oct. 16, 12:00-5:00 p.m., with a variety of craft beer, wine and spirits from local producers.

Get your tickets now for both these events at maryland5star.us/special-events/!

Be sure to stay tuned for more announcements on retail vendors, food and beverage offerings, and a wide variety of other activities for the whole family to enjoy.

The Maryland 5 Star Beer, Wine & Spirits Showcase Powered by Grow & Fortify is a thoughtfully curated tasting event featuring local beer, wine and spirits.

The Showcase will be held on Saturday, Oct. 16, 12:00-5:00 p.m., providing a unique opportunity to sample the best and brightest of what local breweries, wineries and distilleries have to offer while taking a break from the breathtaking excitement of the exhilarating cross-country phase of the competition!

“Grow & Fortify is excited to support such a prestigious international competition. With equine playing a major role in Maryland’s value-added agricultural landscape, it was a natural fit,” said Kevin Atticks, Founder of Grow & Fortify. “Our beer, wine, and spirits showcase adds an element of fun and highlights our state’s craft alcohol producers.”

Tickets for the Maryland 5 Star Beer, Wine & Spirits Showcase Powered by Grow & Fortify are $35, but are NOT inclusive of a Saturday general admission ticket to access the cross-country competition and venue infield.

Saturday Bundle passes include a General Admission ticket AND a Showcase ticket for just $50 when purchased in advance of the Event, only $15 more than a Showcase ticket alone.
