Retreat to the Fair


  • One Lupine/Maine Yarn & Fiber Supply 170 Park Street Bangor, ME, 04401 United States

Maine's Common Ground Country Fair is a hallmark of autumn in northern New England.  This fair is three days of wonderful wandering among sheep, fleece, vegetables, artist booths, music venues, livestock shows and more.  This event is truly one of a kind and should not be missed if you love sheep, wool, yarn and anything related to the fiber world. This fair is renown among farmers and gardeners for its incredible presentation of sustainable country life. The focus is on organic growing, eating, and living! The food vendors are amazing so bring your appetite. Come prepared to walk, look, listen, learn, eat, laugh, and relax!

This year Maine Yarn & Fiber Supply has put together a package to make it easy to attend. We have secured a beautiful house on the coast of Maine, which will be our home base.  You are welcome to attend the fair, which runs from 9/22-9/24, each day, or wander through Maine on your our adventure, or both.
