The Maine Potato Blossom Festival 2021 has been going all week and Sunday, July 18 is the big finale.

There are so many exciting things scheduled to send it off with a big bang - as in the fireworks after dark over the Aroostook River. Plus, there are so many things to do leading up to it.

Schedule of Events

Activities for kids and adults are planned all day - like the obstacle course to bicycle races, car show, Flotilla of Fun and more. We put together a schedule of activities below and you can link to the city of Fort Fairfield’s homepage for the full list and descriptions.

Food Trucks and Vendors

If you’re coming out for the food trucks, you’re doing the right thing - ask anyone who’s been. They’re serving up some delicious feasts. It’s got to be one of the biggest turnouts of local vendors we’ve seen. That’s a nice welcome back when we all went so long without. It's what the Maine Potato Blossom Festival does - bringing the community together for generations.

You’re sure to find something to buy at the vendors’ tables too. They are selling such a wide variety of arts and crafts - things you can’t find anywhere else. It’s so much fun walking, shopping and talking to the sellers. 

Live Music

Come and get your groove on with Reverend Funk and the Congregation Band as they play the Main Stage at the Village Square from 7 -10 pm. Bring lawn chairs & blankets to spread out and make a space for you and your family and friends. Get up and dance when the mood strikes you.
