Maine Potato Blossom Festival
The Maine Potato Blossom Festival is one of the premier events in all of Maine, attracting tens of thousands of visitors to Fort Fairfield, a small community located in the heart of Aroostook County. The Festival is a tremendous source of pride for the people who call Fort Fairfield home. There are more than 100 family friendly events planned for this year’s Festival, with highlights including the ever popular potato picking contest on Thursday evening July 13th, and mashed potato wrestling on Friday evening July 14th, Northern Maine’s largest parade on Saturday July 15th (line-up begins at 11am – parade starts at 1pm) and a spectacular fireworks over the Aroostook River provide an exciting finale to the nine-day event on Sunday night July 16th. In addition to our traditional line-up of events, the 70th annual Maine Potato Blossom Festival will feature an expanded schedule of musical performances. There will be live entertainment at the Community Bandstand on Main Street every evening and four nights of music on the Festival Main Stage beginning Thursday July 13th - Sunday July 16th before the fireworks finale over the Aroostook River! All shows are presented FREE of charge.
