It's no secret that every single fair in Maine has made the absolute most challenging decision of canceling their 2020 agricultural fairs. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and to ensure the safety of the many traditional fairgoers, there was just no possible way to ensure everyone's safety.

However, some of Maine's Agricultural fairs have decided to still host smaller events as a way to ensure a safer time for guests. Unfortunately, even on a smaller scale, there will not be midway rides or livestock, but great news there will still be something for us to do.

The Union Fair Maine's Wild Blueberry Festival made the ultimate decision to cancel their traditional fair week, but they still want to provide guests with some type of fair-like experience. We can expect to see a demolition derby, a gigantic lawn sale, and last but certainly not least, Thunder Valley Lawn Mower Racing.


Scheduled Events

  • Gigantic Yardsale - Saturday, September 12
  • Thunder Valley Lawn Mower Racing - Saturday, September 19
    (Rain date September 20)
  • Demolition Derby - Saturday, September 26

The final decision will be made sometime in late August, so the Union Fair is asking guests to check back around August 25 to see if these three events cancel or if they will go on as scheduled.
