I-95 RoadTrip: ‘Tis the Season for Maine Agricultural Fairs

I-95 RoadTrip: ‘Tis the Season for Maine Agricultural Fairs

Summer and early fall heralds some of the best entertainment Maine has to offer: our wonderful agricultural fairs. Community’s across the state celebrate all that makes Maine special with delightful 4-H and livestock exhibits, animal pull events, crafts, Maine products and plenty of local food. Warm nights are filled with the sound of great local bands and national stars, while the ferris wheels and exhilarating rides light up the sky.

From The County to the sea, agricultural fairs are held in just about every region of the state. Some, like the Windsor, Farmington and Cumberland fairs, have harness racing; others draw crowds to the demolition derbies. The best thing about Maine fairs is that there is something for everyone in the family to love. The fair season comes to an end in Maine with the beloved Common Ground Fair in Unity and the Fryeburg Fair. The Common Ground Fair is unique in that it celebrates organic living and locally grown produce. Fryeburg’s fair is one of the state’s largest with over 150,000 visitors each year during the week-long event. Plus, it has deep-fried Oreos.
