Vendors and Applications
Information for vendors and exhibitors at MOFGA's Common Ground Country Fair
We value and prioritize businesses, farms and organizations with Maine roots, organic practices, and local sourcing. Whether you have been a vendor for many years at our traditional Common Ground Country Fair or think you’d be a great addition to our Fair, we recommend you read the full Fair Guidelines and your specific area guidelines in the directory below before applying.
We are hopeful that we will be able to gather in person on September 24, 25 and 26 for the 2021 Common Ground Country Fair and have begun preparations to host an on-site event in Unity. The health and safety of our community is our number one priority and as a result the Fair will look different this year. We are implementing changes across the fairgrounds to offer and support a safe experience in accordance with current Maine Center for Disease Control and Maine Department of Economic and Community Development guidelines for outdoor festivals. We’ll continue to keep this page updated as the situation evolves and we learn more in the coming months. At this time, here’s what we anticipate will change based on current conditions:
- Attendance will be managed to reduce congestion. Stay tuned for details on ticketing and attendance.
- Masks will be required of all participants.
- Layouts will be changed to allow for more distance between vendors.
- Some areas and activities will not take place this year. Stay tuned for details.
- Additional sanitation of high-touch areas will be in place.
