What better way to celebrate the arrival of fall this weekend than with a trip to the fair? Maine’s fairs are a staple of the season and one of the most popular, the Common Ground Fair, kicks off today!
This “celebration of agriculture, organic methods, livestock, crafts” and green living is put on by MOFGA, the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association. This year’s fair features a wide variety of events, from canning basics to making your own lip balm, as well as Q&A sessions on organic farming. Plus, there are keynote speeches from sustainable living advocates, and many other family friendly activities, like the vegetable garden parade!
For directions and a full schedule of events, visit the MOFGA website. You can also find additional information on other fairs and events on our Employee Favorites page, as well as the Maine Association of Agricultural Fairs website.
Do you have a favorite fall fair? We’d love to hear your feedback!
