The storied tradition of Eventing at beautiful Fair Hill continues with the inaugural Maryland 5 Star to be held at the newly constructed Fair Hill Special Event Zone in Elkton, MD (Cecil County). One of only two 5 Star events in the United States, and seventh worldwide, the prestigious 5 Star (CCI5*) designation is the pinnacle of the sport of eventing, best described as an equestrian triathlon. Arriving in October 2021, the event marks a new chapter for the state of Maryland’s prestigious horse and equestrian tradition. The event will showcase four days of competition in Dressage, Cross-Country, and Show Jumping.

Fair Hill is a 5,656-acre MD Department of Natural Resources Management Area, conveniently located between Baltimore and Philadelphia, with proximity to Delaware. Fair Hill is known for its pristine terrain, woodlands, and natural beauty. The property was formerly owned by William duPont, Jr., an avid equestrian and racecourse developer, then it was purchased by the State of Maryland in 1975.
