This sustainability-centric event historically comes to Frederick in the first weekend of June.

The fair traditionally includes national exhibitors with the products you need to make your next project or hobby come to fruition.

This year’s fair included a chat and book signing with Gary Collins for "An Introduction to Primal Living and Eating." This talk gave expert advice on budget-friendly fitness solutions and step-by-step actions you can take to transform your life.

Keep an eye out for scheduling and a list of events for the 2020 Mother Earth News Fair.

Admission to the fair is free for children and there are plenty of family-friendly activities throughout the weekend.

A special collaboration with The Frederick News-Post also brings its signature Uncapped brand to the event for the best of local beer, wine and spirits. Only at the news fair can you access this special feature. Admission to the fair includes access to the Uncapped tent.
