Fryeburg Fair - a Maine tradition

If you have never been to the Fryeburg Fair, you don't know what you're missing. Thousands of people flock to Fryeburg, Maine to carry on a rich tradition that signifies the official start of fall here in the foothills. Campers and RV's line up in rows, many owned by locals, and the traffic gets a bit, well, crazy.

Just a 28 minute drive from the Inn to the Fair!

Despite the fire back in July, this year promises to deliver a fantastic time for people of all ages. Besides the delicious fair food and animal exhibits, some of our favorite events and exhibits include

  • Woodsmen's Day Monday, 10/1 @9 AM

  • Pig Scramble

  • Flower Show

  • Whoopie Pie Contest (yes, you read that right)

  • Live Music

  • Fireman's Muster

  • Antique Tractors and Tractor Pull

  • Horse Show

  • Fireworks Friday, 10/5 @9 PM

There will be speakers, demonstrations, church services, dairy show, livestock exhibits, baking contests, skillet throw, and many other things that the Fair simply couldn't do without!
