The countdown is over and fair season in Maine has officially hit land and we're off to a very good start. We're now gearing up for the Litchfield Fair and I am so excited!

Let's start off with where and when it is. The Litchfield Fair is located at 44 Plains Rd in Litchfield. They start off today, September 8–10th, from 7 AM–10 PM, Saturday from 7 AM–10 PM, and Sunday from 8 AM–5 PM.
The entire fair schedule of events are here but let me highlight what I am looking forward to the most!

Tonight, we're gearing up for the thrilling pie judging contest at 6:00pm, where skilled bakers will pour their hearts into creating incredible tasty pies that leave a lasting impression. My co-host Matt James and I are honored to be a part of the judges panel and my taste buds are ready!

As always, the agricultural exhibits at Maine fairs continue to surprise me, and this year is no exception!

The pig scramble always promises to be a silly and fun spectacle to enjoy. Speaking of pigs, check out the Mama pig with her babies that I loved at the last fair I went to. I can't wait to see the pigs at Litchfield!
