It’s Country Fair Time in Maine!!!


Mainers love their country fairs, and visitors get a kick out of all the things they don’t normally see. Currently in progress is the Cumberland County Fair (September 18-September 28). This year’s annual fair will host the 21st Maine State Pumpkin and Squash weigh-in, a perennial favorite…seeing who will produce the largrest gord!

Dale Earnhardt’s #88 National Guard/AMP Nascar show car ill appear on Sptember 23rd and 24th. And, of course harness racing!!

Maine’s largest agricultural fair, the Fryeburg Fair is held annually during the 10 days prior to Columbus Day. Staged at the peak of foliage season, this huge fair is even more colorful than its surroundings. It’s a classic, old New England extravaganza, with snorting pigs, horse-pulling matches, serene llamas, pumpkins the size of Rhode Island, and contests for the best-looking  and best-tasting pies..

This fair runs from September 28-October 5 this year.  Come experience the fun of old fashioned country tradition.
