26th Annual Cumberland Fair Pumpkin and Squash Weigh Off

pumkin_smallThis year’s Cumberland Fair will host the 26th Annual Maine State Pumpkin and Squash Weigh-In. Each year promises much anticipation and excitement to see who will outgrow last year’s massive gourd!


Harness Racing Every Day


As always, one of the core attractions at the Cumberland Fair is our Harness Racing program – which has been on-going since we started on Main Street in Cumberland in 1871!  We’ve gotten away from racing down Main Street though, and look forward to another exciting line-up for you for the 142nd Annual Cumberland County Fair!
