FRYEBURG, Maine — Up to 300,000 people are expected for this year’s Fryeburg Fair, Maine’s largest agricultural fair.

The fair begins Sunday and runs through next Sunday, attracting crowds with its midway, more than 3,000 farm animals, food booths, harness racing, live music and events such as horse- and ox-pulling competitions, a skillet-throwing contest and pig scrambles.

Admission is $10, with children under 12 admitted for free.

The fair has been held in its current location since 1885.


An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that seniors over the age of 65 are admitted for free. Seniors are admitted for no charge on Tuesdays.
