The Ag Center

... the place to look for Agriculture, Sporting Events and Entertainment of all kinds ...

WELCOME to the Carroll County Agriculture Center ... 20+ acres of indoor facilities, outdoor areas, meeting facilities, function and banquet rooms – and the state-of-the-art Danele Shipley Memorial Arena, and much more!

For more than 50 years the Ag Center has been the region's premier location for rodeo's, livestock and equestrian outings, live music and entertainment shows, auto and motorcycle events, trade shows and exhibits, and of course – the Carroll County 4-H and FFA Fair. It is also the permanent home of the long-running Carroll County Farmers Market and the highly–regarded 4-H Therapeutic Riding Program of Carroll County!

In 2017 we again bring you lots of new events and shows ... our annual Buckwild Truck and Tractor Classic in the spring, huge indoor flea markets throughout the year, musical shows and concerts,our annual corn maze in the fall, our first Ag Center Arts and Crafts Festival in May, dog shows, and lots more.

We are located in Westminster, MD in central beautiful Carroll County just 25 minutes from the BALTIMORE Beltway (MD 695). The Ag Center and Shipley Arena are perfectly situated to meet the diverse needs of those in Carroll County and our neighbors in Baltimore, Washington D.C., southern Pennsylvania and Delaware. We are here for you – YEAR-ROUND – presenting the best in Agriculture, Sporting Events and Entertainment of all kinds!

Visit us soon – we look forward to hosting you in comfort and style! Learn about upcoming shows and events on our website – visit us here often.
