Maine Festival That Should Not Be Missed!
Our favorite is the Fourth of July in Castine when the whole town comes alive in an outdoor festival of activities. There is music on the waterfront, a costume parade, and traditional games on the common, such as: potato sack races, a town tug of war, and fireworks over the harbor after sunset. There is nothing better than Maine festivals!
In Deer Isle the hills come alive with the blossoming of lupines, and the town celebrates its Lupine Festival on June 15, 16 & 17.
In Blue Hill over Labor Day weekend, there is the Blue Hill Fair, an old Maine county fair with traditional farm games, oxen and horse pulls, 4-H ribbon-award ceremonies, pig races, barrel relays on horse, and sheep dog trials.
The annual Common Ground Fair takes place usually the third weekend in September. This fair is organized by the Maine Organic Farmers and Growers Association and features organic produce, hand made products, livestock and music. It is located in Unity, Maine and draws people from all over the state and New England.
