# Maine fairs and festivals
Things to Do in Maine 9/24 and 9/25
Happy Fall, everyone! What happened to September? As we head towards October, that means there won't be any shortage of harvest and fall-related events. If you haven't checked out one of Maine's fairs, you might want to do that as your time is running out for this year as the fair season will be over in the next two weeks. This weekend also has the Dempsey Challenge being held in Lewiston, and I also can't forget to mention free admission on Saturday, 9/24 to Acadia National Park with National Public Lands Day.
Ossipee Valley Fair
Mark your calendars for another fair you will want to check out this week. The friendliest of fairs, the Ossipee Fair, will be held from July 7th to 10th at 291 South Hiram Road in Hiram, Maine. There will be something for all ages to enjoy at the Ossipee Fair, which will be jam-packed with events and activities. The fair will feature activities, exhibits, and demonstrations that honor rural New England's agriculture, livestock, and handicrafts. Hiram, Maine is an hour and twenty-five minutes from Augusta, two hours and twenty-five minutes from Bangor, and half an hour from Conway, New Hampshire.
