Fair Hill Special Event Zone

project Summary

In May 2018, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) requested Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA) provide design and engineering services for site improvements at Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area in anticipation of hosting a premier CCI5* three-day equestrian eventing competition.

In May 2019, the Maryland Board of Public Works approved the Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area Equine Improvements project with construction scheduled to begin after the Memorial Day weekend 85th Annual Fair Hill Races.

Improvements include upgrades to the turf equestrian course and turf timber course, installing three new equine arenas, infrastructure improvements required to support cross country/trail development, and installing an irrigation system to support the turf course maintenance of the enhanced facilities.
