FRYEBURG ME – Fryeburg Fair, Maine’s Blue Ribbon Classic, is Maine’s largest agricultural fair second in New England in size only to Eastern States in Massachusetts. Today Fryeburg Fair sits on 185 acres and has over 100 buildings. The eight-day fair hosts over 3,000 animals including prize-winning draft horses, ponies, racing horses, oxen, dairy & beef cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, poultry, rabbits and much more. Maine’s Blue Ribbon Classic is always during the first week in October.

Fryeburg Fair attracts more than 225,000 people annually.
