To ac­com­mo­date fair-go­ers this year, the Charles County Fair has worked closely with the sher­iff’s of­fice to op­ti­mize its traf­fic and park­ing plan.

All traf­fic into the fair must en­ter Fair­grounds Road from the south en­trance off of Bel Al­ton New­town Road. All traf­fic leav­ing the fair must travel north from the park­ing lot onto Fair­grounds Road, ex­it­ing onto U.S. 301. There will be no non-lo­cal, two-way traf­fic on Fair­grounds Road.

A free shut­tle bus ser­vice will take pas­sen­gers from the La Plata court­house park­ing lot di­rectly to the front gate of the fair, and is strongly rec­om­mended. The bus will have di­rect ac­cess to Fair­grounds Road and will not have to en­ter by way of Bel Al­ton New­town Road.

Cour­tesy of Pizza Hot­line in La Plata, each shut­tle bus rider will also re­ceive a coupon that will get them $1 off the fair ticket price of $5. Ad­di­tion­ally, each rider can re­deem the coupon for a free pizza af­ter the fair.

The shut­tle bus ser­vice will be op­er­at­ing Fri­day and Satur­day from noon to 10 p.m., and Sun­day from noon to 7 p.m.

The sher­iff’s of­fice re­minds fair-go­ers not to leave valu­ables in­side their ve­hi­cles in plain sight, and to re­port any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity.
