Westminster, MD, Tuesday, May 14, 2024 – The Carroll County 2024 carnival season is almost here, and the County Commissioners encourage all residents to support local fire departments by attending carnivals and other fund-raising events. Although the county continues the process of gradually transitioning to a combination system, fundraising and donations remain critically important to the maintenance of the stations and equipment.

Carnivals and other fire department activities are an important source of fundraising for Carroll County fire companies without which the companies cannot function. This wonderful community tradition is important for both the financial support of the volunteers who help safeguard our county and also for the family-friendly experience enjoyed by all.

5/21 - 5/25     New Windsor Fire Department
5/24 – 6/01    Gamber & Community Fire Company
5/30 – 6/01    Union Bridge Fire Company
