The summer of 2023 is going to be a blast!

Who wants a doughboy? After the harsh reality of this winter is long gone, we will have so many things to look forward to once again. And it just wouldn't be summer and fall in the State of Maine without the fair!

Hard not to dream of hot summer days and nights, especially when we are in the depths of freezing cold, and snow!

The folks at have released the scheduled dates for the 2023 State Fair season, including the iconic Bangor State Fair, which cranks things up from August 3-August 6.

The thought of going on rides, playing games, and enjoying French fries with vinegar on a hot summer day is too good to pass up, especially on a day like today, where we are expecting ridiculous wind chills of up to 60mph. Yikes.

For all things fair-related, you can check out the Maine Fairs website.
