Fall in New England - Common Ground Fair

2 months ago

A big autumn event in Maine is the Common Ground Fair which was last weekend. It is a mix of a huge old fashioned country fair mixed with organic purity. For the longest time coffee was not allowed.

It came back after two years of absence due to Covid it came back with a roar. My sister and I were vendors for the two years before Covid. So it was our third year. Three very busy days - 60,000 plus people. By far our best year.

Unfortunately I didn’t get much time to wander. Lots of traditional country fair stuff - working animals, best of blue ribbons for fall crops, fiber arts etc... Also indigenous arts. Beautiful baskets. A youth entrepeneur area. Seminars on all manner of agricultural, off grid and rural living subjects. Lots of ’healthy’ versions of fair food trucks (with huge lines). Lots of vendors selling various crafts, food and agricultural products.

Definitely worth checking out if in Maine. Although it is quite a traipse into and out of the fairgrounds.
