The Maryland State Fair is held in Timonium each year near Labor Day on the grounds of the former Timonium Race Course, which is an important site along with Pimlico Race Course in northwest Baltimore and Laurel Park in Prince George's County, along with other former tracks at Bowie and Rosecroft in Maryland thoroughbred horse racing traditions.

Etymology

Timonium takes its name from the Timonium Mansion, the home of Mrs. Archibald Buchanan, who, in melancholia due to the loss of eyesight and the death of a close friend, felt her life was like that of Mark Antony after the Battle of Actium. The original Timonium was an incomplete palace Mark Antony built on the island of Antirhodos in the harbor of Alexandria, Egypt. Antony died by suicide at the palace after receiving a false report that Cleopatra had died by suicide. [3]
