2018 MAINE SUMMER FAIRS AND FESTIVALS
Continued from Home Page.
Local fairs and festivals have been a Maine tradition since 1819, when the very first Maine Agricultural Fair was held in Skowhegan. Since then, no other venue has had the power to bring communities together. Whether it’s the Common Ground Fair, Maine Whoopie Pie Festival, or Piscataquis River Festival, attending one or more of these gatherings during the summer will provide an opportunity for meeting and greeting your neighbors, reconnecting with long lost friends, and forming new friendships. Maine communities prepare all year long, with the help from hundreds of volunteers, including area businesses, organizations and members of the community as they fundraise and organize to ensure the fair or festival is a successs. Fairs and festivals represent the BEST of “small town America”, and showcases what rural life here in Maine has to offer. Attendees may experience anything from livestock demonstrations to live entertainment. They can participate in amusement park rides, sample different foods, play games, but most importantly create lasting memories. Take a look at the “tentative” list of this summer’s special celebrations being held in the local area and across the state. Mark your calendars today. As you know Maine summers are short and you don’t want to miss a minute of what this great state has to offer. Have an amazing summer everyone!
