Hegemann Named Festival Director

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. To sponsor an event or volunteer, contact Hegemann at mpbf@fortfairfield.org.

Our Amish community, which extends into the neighboring community of Easton and across the border into New Brunswick, offers an opportunity to explore their old-world lifestyle. Visitors can capture a glimpse into their industrious world and shop for many handmade crafts, quality furniture and homemade baked goods, preserves and more!  Have something bigger in mind?  These master craftsmen can design and build a custom barn or building just for you. In addition, members of our Amish community plant bountiful gardens and sell a wide variety of locally grown, organic vegetables which are available at roadside stands throughout the area.  

The Fort Fairfield Chamber of Commerce has partnered with members of our local Amish community to publish a map to help guide you to many of the Amish households and businesses in the area.  We ask that you please be respectful of the privacy of our Amish neighbors and mindful of their desire not to have pictures taken without seeking permission.
