The 2020 Fryeburg Fair, which was scheduled for October 4-11, will not be held this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers plan to resume the fair October 3-10, 2021.
“We wish to express our gratitude to everyone for their continued support,” a statement reads on the Fryeburg Fair’s website. “It is because of our fairgoers, campers, employees, vendors, exhibitors and agricultural partners that Fryeburg Fair has enjoyed a long and wonderful history. It is with this same partnership we plan for a bright future.
“Our commitment to 4H is part of our agricultural mission. Fryeburg Fair is working on a plan to help our 4H members auction their animals as would ordinarily take place during fair week. The format has not been completed yet but please stay tuned. We will be in touch as soon as possible.”
The Fryeburg Fair, which was founded in 1851 in Fryeburg, Maine, is the state’s largest agricultural fair.
Fryeburg is 51 miles northwest of Portland, Maine, and 145 miles north of Boston.
