The Common Ground Country Fair is delighted to be one of the most popular destinations in Maine each fall. Annually almost 60,000 visitors enjoy the Common Ground Country Fair. If you are planning on attending the Fair, we want to be sure that you have an enjoyable and healthy experience. Most of the Common Ground Country Fair is held outdoors, in the open or under cover in a tent or barn. You are sure to spend a lot of time outside and on your feet at the Fair, moving from place to place. Please wear comfortable footwear. We encourage all Fairgoers to be prepared for the elements to best enjoy a healthy and busy day at the Fair. Here are a few items we recommend that you bring to the Fair:

  1. Water bottles. Good hydration is key to enjoying a long day outside. We have clean drinking water available on-site and special bottle filling faucets in numerous locations available to refill bottles.
  2. A hat, light raincoat or wind shell. Dressing in weather appropriate clothes and wearing comfortable footwear, such as sneakers, suitable for lots of walking are also advised. Late September in Maine can dish out a wide mix of weather. We want you to be comfortable no matter what the skies deliver.
  3. A non-toxic sunscreen. When the sun is out there's more sun than shade on the Fairgrounds. Take care of that skin of yours.

**Pets are strictly prohibited from the fairgrounds, parking lots (including parked cars) and camping areas.**
