Aroostook’s famous Potato Blossom Festival kicks off this weekend

As potato plants bloom in Aroostook County, the city of Fort Fairfield is preparing to welcome thousands to the annual Maine Potato Blossom Festival.

A week of events from Saturday July 13 to Sunday July 21 will celebrate the county’s agricultural heritage.

Hosted by Fort Fairfield since 1947, the event is one of Maine’s oldest festivals and draws people from across the state and beyond. For Aroostook County, which grows 90 percent of Maine’s potato crop, it’s a chance to honor all things spud.
