One thing that my wife and I look forward to each year is the Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine. Put on by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), the fair is free to members, of which we are. In some respects, it's sort of a hippie thing, so we go into the political tents for amusement purposes only, since they are dominated by the most leftist bunch of wackos that you might ever come across. But there are usually only one or two political tents, making up a very small percentage of the fair. The Common Ground Fair is quite large, and it includes workshops on pretty much every issue having to do with farming or gardening, particularly from an organic perspective, as well as alternative housing, forestry, etc. Vendors are there with displays and information, and there are exhibits of all sorts, as well as music and other stuff. One day of it is enough for us, but it goes on for three days. We get a room in the area the night before, then go early in the morning on the second day, which is when most of the stuff is going on, given the first day involves some setup before everything is in place, and some areas close up early on the last day.
