The storied tradition of Eventing at iconic Fair Hill continues with the inaugural Maryland 5 Star to be held October 14-17 at the newly constructed Fair Hill Special Event Zone in Elkton, Maryland (Cecil County).

The Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill is one of only two 5 Star events in the United States, and just the seventh worldwide, and its prestigious 5 Star (CCI5) designation is the pinnacle of the Olympic sport of Eventing, best 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 Presented by Dubarry of Ireland.

The Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill marks a new chapter for the State of Maryland’s rich horse and equestrian tradition. The event will showcase four days of Eventing competition with Dressage (Thu-Fri), Cross-Country (Sat) and Show Jumping (Sun).

“Volunteers are critical to the success of the sport of Eventing. We are looking for a large amount of dedicated individuals who would like to participate in the inaugural Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill,” said Volunteer Coordinator, Debi Rogers. “There are many different areas before and during the event in which volunteers are needed, so we invite everyone who would enjoy being on the inside of this exciting world-class event to go to and sign up today!”

Volunteers receive complimentary tickets to the event and more. Further information on the inaugural Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill is available at or contact [email protected].
