The Folk Arts Area presents demonstrations and classes in traditional Maine arts in its tents and open areas. Exhibits in the tents include: woods crafts, such as canoe building and porcupine quillwork; domestic arts, such as quilting and basket making; and rug hooking, among many others.

The Maine Folk Traditions Tent features traditional music and dance from Maine's rich heritage. The ever-popular bean-hole beans are served at noon each day of the Fair.

The Folk Arts open area offers fairgoers the chance to try international folk dancing and offers a community countradance as well.

Our Blacksmith Shop allows quality demonstrations of blacksmithing at the Fair and at other events throughout the year. During the Fair, a number of demonstrations will showcase the different skills and talents of Maine blacksmiths in creating traditional farm and home implements.
