Finally after more than a year of restrictions and cancelations due to the pandemic related to Covid-19, there is now life at the end of the tunnel....and that life is, The Monmouth Fair.

If you are fully vaccinated you do not need to wear a mask. The smell of farm animals and diesel fueled tractors reins supreme once again.

According to an article by, the Monmouth Fair board of directors are quick to point out that even though the fair in underway, things are different as everyone tries to return to some form of normal.

Children who attend under 12 are free. Kids 12 to 17 are $3, 18 and over are $6 daily. Seniors are $3 Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

This four day event promises to be and feel wonderful to finally be able to get out and enjoy some of the things that make Maine life so enjoyable.
