Waterford World's Fair

A World’s Fair? In North Waterford, Maine?

In 1850 when Tom Green started The Fair, Society was predominantly agricultural, the main focus of the Fair was to see who had the best animals, who grew the best crops, who did the best fancy work or had the best home making skills. The part of society that is agricultural has become so small that most people are unaware of the skill required to successfully be a Farmer.

The present Waterford World’s Fair is dedicated to preserving our rural heritage by showcasing what agriculture is all about.
