Since 1977, this celebration of rural living offers something for everyone, in a traditionally festive atmosphere. Features farmers and their livestock, Maine-grown organic foods, music and entertainment. Learn basic gardening skills and see vendors of Maine-made crafts, folk arts, food, plants, agricultural tools, environmentally friendly living items and much more!

TAKE THE TRAIN! Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad offers trips to and from the fair!
Take their trains for a unique and convenient way to get to the Common Ground Country Fair. Park at either our Unity or Thorndike parking areas and ride the trains to our platform on the east side of the fairground commons just behind the administrative buildings.
Tickets are good for any train during the day of purchase! This is more than a round trip ticket, it allows you to travel back to your car if you forget something and get back to the fair.
They will have two trains operating all day on convenient schedules and their stations are only 10 to 15 minutes from the fair grounds.
Tickets sold at our boarding areas in Unity and Thorndike on the day of the fair.
