The 2021 Maine agricultural fair season is underway. Families are out enjoying friends, and kids ride all the fair rides, play games, and eat some of the yummiest food.

We are lucky that this year fairs are open and ready for tons and tons of visitors. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, Maine's agricultural fair circuit took a huge hit last year when none of them opened.

As the world has started its return to normal, we still see huge spikes in covid numbers. As more people are looking to get out and the vaccine, we're starting to see fairs and festivals hold covid clinics around the state.

According to the Union Fair/ The Maine Wild Blueberry Festival, they are jumping on the bandwagon and will now offer a Covid-19 vaccine clinic. The vaccine clinic is on Thursday, August 26th, from 11 am to 6 pm, right at the Union Fairgrounds. No appointment is needed.

Those who receive the vaccine shot will receive a one-day pass to return to the fair on Friday the 27th or Saturday the 28th.
