Fryeburg Fair officials have made several changes to the upcoming 2021 Fryeburg Fair.  Now, it looks like they are making at least one more. .

In 2020, nearly every Maine fair was forced to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Now that Maine's Agricultural Fairs are back in full bloom, the fairs are seeing record-breaking numbers.  This is causing long ticket lines for entry, food, and rides. Now, we've all been cooped up for the better part of two years, so this should come as shock to none of us.

It looks like officials at the Fryeburg Fair are trying to alleviate at least some of those lines.

According to a Facebook post made by the Fryeburg Fair, they are asking guests to pre-purchase tickets online vs at the fair entrance gate. Why? This is the easiest way for the fair staff to keep lines moving quickly and it also makes it safer keeping everyone as distanced as possible. Fryeburg Fair tickets can be purchased HERE.

However, you should know that there are some other big changes, not just crowds and lines.

Due to the ongoing pandemic and safety concerns, the Fryeburg fair will not be offering rentals of any sort, which means no strollers, wagons, scooters, or wheelchair rentals. The Fryeburg Fair understands this is a big change, but it really is the safest option.
