An important update
about the 2021
Common Ground Fair

It is with heavy hearts that we’re writing today to let you know that we have decided not to move forward with an in-person Common Ground Country Fair this year. The ongoing pandemic, rising COVID-19 cases throughout Maine, and valuable feedback from our community have led us to this point. We did not come to this decision easily and know that people will have mixed reactions and emotions, as we all do. So many people have worked very hard to put on a 2021 fair, including countless volunteer hours. We honor the hard work and dedication of all who make the Fair happen each year. In the end, we feel this large-scale community building event should not take place in the current COVID-19 situation. 

We hope that we will be able to hold a successful in-person Common Ground Country Fair on September 23, 24 and 25, 2022. It will be an all hands on deck planning process that will begin later this fall and we’ll need our full community to make this a reality. 

By working together, we hope that we will all get through this difficult situation. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Volunteer as an Area Coordinator

Area Coordinators organize every aspect of the Fair – from organizing speakers to laying out parking lots to working at the gates. Coordinating is an amazing way to support the Fair and work with a group of amazing people. We have openings for coordinators, assistant coordinators, and understudies. We have leadership opportunities before, during and after the Fair.
