Fort Fairfield native, Meg McLaughlin Hegemann has been named as the new director of the Maine Potato Blossom Festival. Hegemann has experience planning a variety of events, as well as a deep love for the potato industry and the festival that celebrates it.meg 350 “Working the fields gave me a connection to the land here such that no other place felt like home.” After decades in Missouri, Meg and her husband, Brad, moved to Fort Fairfield in June 2016. As director, Hegemann will work with existing volunteers and recruit new ones to facilitate the week long event. “The Festival doesn't just celebrate the town of Fort Fairfield, it celebrates an industry that in many ways defines the County. It takes cooperation from a lot of people and places to make it happen. I look forward to working together to make the 2018 Festival one of the best.” The 2018 Maine Potato Blossom Festival will take place July 14 – 22 with the parade on Saturday, July 21.

The Fort Fairfield Chamber of Commerce has partnered together with the Frontier Heritage Historical Society on a special t-shirt project to raise funds for both organizations.  The money raised from the sale of the shirts will be split evenly by the two groups, with the Chamber using funds to support local businesses and improve the economic climate of Fort Fairfield and the Historical Society using the funds they generate to help replace the roof on the blockhouse downtown.
