Information for vendors and exhibitors at MOFGA's Common Ground Country Fair
Each year, almost 60,000 visitors travel to the Common Ground Country Fair to exchange knowledge, eat, and shop with our 650-plus vendors and exhibitors. We invite vendors, speakers and performers to begin preparations with us, apply for booth space and plan your presentations. To help you with your decision to participate, here are links to our general timeline, refund policy and Fair guidelines.
We value and prioritize businesses, farms and organizations with Maine roots, organic practices, and local sourcing. Whether you have been a vendor for many years at our traditional Common Ground Country Fair or think you’d be a great addition to our Fair, we recommend you read the full Fair Guidelines and your specific area guidelines in the directory below before applying.
