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 2016 we again bring you lots of new events and shows ... our annual tractor pull in the spring, huge indoor flea markets, boxing events, musical shows and concerts,corn maze, 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!
