2018 Can’t-miss fall events in Maine

Written by: Aimsel Ponti

Beautiful foliage and crisp fall days make autumn in Maine a glorious time of year. As we bask in the afterglow of summer and start to think about hitting the ski slopes, let’s also remember to stay present because there’s a cornucopia of fabulous fall events happening all over the state. The Common Ground Country Fair along with the ones in Cumberland, Fryeburg and Farmington are always safe bets, but for this roundup, we dug even deeper beneath the leaves to compile a collection of offerings. We hope you take a look at these events and dive right in. Winter is coming, rest assured. But, in the meantime, let’s enjoy every drop of fall, pumpkins and all.
