Take notes, this dude knows his stuff!

Summer is in full swing, and that means fair season here in Maine. This list of places you can visit and have fun is pretty staggering, which can be confusing. Not to worry, one expert breaks down his favorites.

Doug Schauf, has his own YouTube channel called “Make Maine Your Home” that covers a variety of topics regarding the Pine Tree State, including a video about one of the most exciting things about summer here in the 207.

Maine is legendary for some of the best fairs in the country, so Doug breaks down his favorites in this video.

The Fryeburg Fair, is a mix of everything that makes a fair going experience so much fun. Great food, exciting midway rides, animals, tractor pulls, and a bunch more family friendly activities.

The Common Ground Country Fair, specializes in agricultural events, plus delicious produce from Maine’s Organic Farmers, local hand crafted goods for sale, animal demonstrations, and events for the kiddos.

He also shouts out the iconic Bangor State Fair, and the awesome demolition derbies, and of course food!

His final recommendation is the Cumberland County Fair, which is just about to kick off another year.

Fair season is well underway, but there are a ton still to come in the next few months.
