About Us

Fort Fairfield hosts the annual Maine Potato Blossom Festival in mid-July, when the potato blossoms are in full bloom. This celebration of our agricultural roots, with one of the largest parades in Northern New England (which is always the third Saturday in July), will be held July 9th - 17th in 2016. This nine-day family-friendly Festival features road races, pageants, music and performances by local and national acts, arts & crafts, fireworks, a river run, mashed potato wrestling, potato picking and much, much more! Come discover Aroostook County and be sure not to miss this 'spudtacular' event!

The Maine Potato Blossom Festival is one of the oldest and most established festivals in Maine. Founded in 1937, this event was created to celebrate Maine's supreme commodity, the potato! No matter how young or young at heart you are, the Festival offers fun for everyone. Some of the traditional activities include the Maine Potato Queen Pageant, the Annual Antique Tractor Pull and Fireworks over the beautiful Aroostook River. Do you want your pet to get his/her moment of fame? Enter your furry pal in the Household Pet Show. There's food, music, dancing, arts & crafts, horse shows, and so much more. Who knew potatoes could be so much fun?
