Carnivals in MD are a favorite summer past time for many people, both young and old. A variety of volunteer fire companies hold carnivals in Carroll County, MD every summer. Carnivals are community traditions that continue to be important. These are some of the largest fundraisers held each year. The fire companies would not be able to function without their fundraising activities and community support. These events not only help preserve a quality of life for the communities, but also offer support to the volunteers and companies that provide Carroll County’s safety and security. The monies made from the rides, games, food and raffles provide much needed financial support for the local fire departments. They have many expenses each year, including: maintaining and purchasing the various pieces of equipment, fuel for the equipment, supplies, the fire station and more. Support your local fire departments by attending one or more of these annual events! Each fire station reserves the right to make change to their itineraries. Please contact each individual fire station for any possible changes.
