We are deep in the middle of Maine fair season!  Even though a lot of the notable fairs are in the rearview, there are still a few big ones to come.

One of the biggest fair's in the state, the Windsor Fair, gets kicked off on Sunday.

How big is it?  By many accounts, it is the second largest fair in the state.  The only fair that is bigger is the Fryeburg Fair.

Of course, we wouldn't miss the fair!  We'll be set up inside the Main Gate all week long.  Our appearances are powered by Affordable Manufactured Homes of Maine and by Simple Storage of Maine.  Thanks to KC FCU we are going to be giving you a chance at a $500 VISA card!

Now, here's everything you need to know about this year's fair!


When Is The Windsor Fair?

The 2023 running of the fair starts on Sunday, August 27th and runs through Labor Day Monday (September 4th).


Will There Be Rides & Games At The Windsor Fair?

Yes!  Just like in years past, the 2023 Windsor Fair will feature dozens of rides for kids of all ages.  There will be lots of games, too.  The GIANT midway will be put on by Rockwell Amusements.
