Maine fairs and festivals celebrate music, the sea, farms, blueberries ... the works!

From the wild north to the scenic coast, from the heat of summer through the beauty of fall and winter, Maine offers fairs and festivals and fun for all. Enjoy rock, country, blues, big band, and folk music everywhere you listen and lots of lobster and blueberries for savoring. You’ll find enough bake, book and yard sales, horse and wagon rides, auctions, parades and carnival rides, air and car shows, arts and crafts to keep you smiling. Year round, lodgings by the sea and relaxing spas are there to help you slow down in between the activity.
