Fairs & Festivals

Friday-Saturday, August 21-22

The Village Folk Festival in downtown Bridgton, “a hands-on celebration of rural life,” promises fun and plenty of food for all, with Depot Street closed down both days from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. for a community block party celebration. There’ll be lots of great musical entertainment all day long, a first-ever Best Beard Contest on Friday, silent auction, art tent, wheelbarrow games, artisans, beer garden and farm to table meals. On Saturday there’ll also be a one-hour history hike through Bridgton’s Pondicherry Park, led by historical character re-enactors. FMI: 415-9837.
