The organizing committee for Northern Maine’s premier family-friendly event, the Maine Potato Blossom Festival, is very pleased to announce an expanded line-up of musical performances and new, exciting events scheduled for the annual nine-day celebration being held from July 11th through July 19th this year.

                “The Maine Potato Blossom Festival has been one of the highlights of summer here in Aroostook County for more than sixty years,” stated Tim Goff, Director of the Maine Potato Blossom Festival. “Fort Fairfield and its residents past and present, have embraced this celebration of our agricultural roots and close-knit community like none other, with dozens of volunteers working year-round to plan the more than 100 events that attract thousands of people to our town, and The County, from throughout the region.”

                “The Festival is like a week-long homecoming celebration,” he continued.  “But the amazing thing is everyone, regardless of race, religion or creed is invited to take part and embraced like they are family!  That is why we have sought to increase the scope and scale of the Festival, so that more people experience this wonderful celebration and we can attract even more people from further afield to visit Fort Fairfield and the surrounding communities when summer is at its peak and the fields are full of beautiful blossoms as far as the eye can see.”

                Highlights of the 2015 Maine Potato Blossom Festival include an expanded line-up of musical acts and performances on the Festival Main Stage with local bands warming things up on Thursday evening July 16th.  The fun begins with Brian and Doug from Common Crossing, followed by local favorites Wally and the Virginian.  On Friday and Saturday nights (July 17 & 18) part of Main Street will be closed down to add a more festive atmosphere and allow folks to roam from the beer garden to the large, diverse Festival Food Court.  Singing cowboy, Del Shields, brings his unique blend of music and story-telling to the Festival Main Stage on Friday evening before seceding way for the Kelly Parker Band to power on into the night.  On Saturday, native son Tim Sample returns to his roots to perform for his hometown crowd before introducing acclaimed singer, songwriter Pete Kilpatrick to the Festival masses.  Headlining the festivities on Saturday night will be Portland, Maine Rock/Funk legends Rustic Overtones!   

                Other new additions include a concert Friday afternoon by Rick Charette to dedicate the new community gardens at the old Community General Hospital, six performances on Saturday and Sunday afternoon by Chris Clark, a professional stunt cyclist who has performed at the X Games, the Olympics and all over the country while spreading the word about bike safety and living a drug-free lifestyle as a professional athlete.  And on Sunday at noon, VFW Post 6187 is encouraging participants to join them and take part in a human foosball game! 

                All these great events are in addition to a town-wide yard sale on July 11th and 12th, nightly entertainment at the Community Bandstand, a household pet show, an arts and crafts fair, a family-fun day featuring bounce houses and a movie under the stars, chess tournaments, athletic events, golf tournament, a baby and bike parade, potato picking contests, mashed potato wrestling, pageants, one of the largest parades in all of northern New England and a fireworks spectacular over the Aroostook River to cap the nine days of food and fun in Friendly Fort Fairfield!
