One of the most unique fairs in Maine is expected to attract tens of thousands of people this weekend. It’s the 38th annual Common Ground Country Fair, a celebration of Maine’s rural and agricultural lifestyle.

The three-day fair in Unity is run by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association.

The theme for this year’s Common Ground Country Fair is ‘permaculture’, which focuses on designing ecological landscape systems that work in harmony with nature to restore balance.

Events will range from low-impact forestry to Scottish Highland cattle and contra dancing.

The weekend will feature farmers showcasing fruits and vegetables, picnic on the fairgrounds.

Food and entertainment will be prominent all weekend. There are four stages with live performances, from Vaudeville acts to puppeteers to roving performers. On Saturday, a group will attempt to pull off the largest drum circle in the world.

There will be nearly 50 vendors at the fair.

Gates are open at 9 a.m.each day and will close at 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the gate. For more information visit mofga.com.
