The 168th Fair Is Here!

Motors. Speed. Power & Noise. All things motorsports at the 168th Springfield Fair. September 1st & 2nd, 91 Park Street, Springfield, Maine. Don’t go for the generic knockoff stuff. Come to the Springfield Fair for great family entertainment.

We have 2 full days of great events. Saturday, September 1st features our huge classic and antique car show at 11 am. Registration is at 10:00. All entries are welcome. 3:30 we will have the crowd favorite pickup pulls on the track in front of our 125 year old wooden grandstand.

On Sunday, September 2nd, we start out, at 8:30, with the tractor trailer parking contest (men & women competing). At 9:00 registration begins for the antique tractor pulls. With 40-50 lovingly renovated tractors from the last century competing, this is a great way to show your kids or grandkids how our farms were powered. At 12:30 we have a more docile tractor sport – the kids pedal tractor race. A timed event with 3 age groups. And to almost wrap up the fair with our heart stopping demolition derby at 5:00 pm. See local guys and gals crash the family vehicle… repeatedly, in an effort to win the coveted champions trophy along with some cash. And as the sun sets on the 2018 Springfield Fair, we’ll be giving away another corkin’ vehicle. Glenn Bettencourt, from Block Auto Sales in Lincoln, is finding us an absolute cherry of a vehicle to be given away. This will take place following the demolition derby. To enter, pay the gate fee, pick up your registration form, fill it out and drop it off in the pavilion.

Just because we have two action packed motorsports days, that doesn’t mean that there is nothing else going on at the fayuh. We have an incredible hypnotist performing three big shows over the two days. And Sunday afternoon brings back NAWA Professional Wrestling – entertainment for all ages. And it’s real too!! Great music Saturday night with Ted & The Boys. Whew – way too much to list here. PLUS world champion wrestler Tony Atlas will be with us Sunday and we just received word that Elvis Presley will be making an appearance.

For all things Springfield Fair go to www.thespringfieldfair.com. We are excited to be offering our 168th version of this historic fair. We hope to see you in a few days. Thank you!
