The Fryeburg Fair is a large agricultural fair held annually in Fryeburg in the U.S. state of Maine. The fair was first held in March 1851, and in subsequent years has grown to become the state's largest agricultural fair.[1] The Fryeburg Fair features livestock shows, harness racing, horse pulling, antique farm and forestry equipment displays and demonstrations, horticultural and culinary contests and displays, a petting zoo, agricultural vendor displays, live musical acts, amusement rides, and food stands. The fair, held over an eight-day period in early October, attracted over 166,000 paid attendees in 2013.[1]

Adverised as the FIRST week of OCTOBER. (Come see the foothills in foliage with the greatest agriculture display left intact for over a century)
