Fort Fairfield Celebrations of Lights

Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council Encourages Enlightenment in Community During Celebration of Lights!

(Fort Fairfield) – The Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council is seeking to spark some excitement in the community for the Holidays with an electrifying new project – the Fort Fairfield Celebration of Lights!  This new, community-wide initiative is designed to bring more light to some of the darkest days of the year by encouraging businesses and homeowners to create a more festive atmosphere in town by decorating their storefronts and homes.

“We’ve been meeting with business and community leaders for months now to refine our plans to bring more buzz to Main Street,” explained Phil Christensen, President of the Quality of Place Council.  “We’ve been drawing up plans to illuminate some areas downtown and working with business owners to help incentivize them to join in the fun.  The response has been terrific, and despite some challenges with this early winter weather, we are excited to put the next phase of the plan into action.”

Over the past few weeks, the Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council has allocated several thousand dollars to replace some of the decorations that were destroyed when the Community Bandstand collapsed and to invest in additional lights to be used on a variety of downtown businesses and landmarks.  Those lights will be on nightly for all to enjoy from December 2nd until January 2nd from 4 to 10pm.  Now, the Council is encouraging property owners to join in the fun.

Any address is Fort Fairfield is eligible to participate in the Celebration of Lights Home Decorating Competition.  A top-secret panel of judges will be traveling throughout the community from 5 to 10pm on Saturday December 15th to take in the sights (and hopefully some sounds!) of participating homes to select the top three holiday light displays.  Those homeowners will win valuable gift cards and prizes from a variety of local businesses.  To register, all homeowners have to do is email ffqualityplace@yahoo.com with their name, address and phone number by midnight December 14th.  Not computer savvy?  Feel free and contact Tim Goff at 939-2440 and provide that same info and you'll be entered to win.  

“This is a great chance for the young, and the young at heart, to enjoy a tradition that many members of the Council fondly recall – driving through neighborhoods and oohing and aahing at the dazzling lights glistening on a blanket of fresh fallen snow,” added Christensen.  “It is our hope that by encouraging our residents to create some beautiful displays, we can create new traditions for everyone to enjoy.”

For more information on the program, or to get involved, please contact Phil Christensen at 227-1644 or email ffqualityplace@yahoo.com

Agri-Business Trade Fair Just Around the Corner

Spring is just around the corner, and so too is an annual rite of spring in Aroostook County, the Northern Maine Agri-Business Trade Fair!

For more than thirty years, the Trade Fair has brought growers and gardeners together to learn new agriculture techniques, try out the latest and greatest technology and tools, and has served as a cabin fever reliever for thousands looking forward to warmer days spent working and playing in the sun and soil.


“I’m not certain spring wouldn’t arrive without the Trade Fair, but the Agri-Business Trade Fair is a sure sign that winter’s icy grip is loosening!” joked Tim Goff, Executive Director of the Fort Fairfield Chamber of Commerce which organizes the show each year.  “The Trade Fair is a wonderful County tradition and an incredible opportunity for our exhibitors to showcase their products and services to thousands of potential customers in a relaxed environment.  And that speaks to the real reason we have such amazing crowds with so many repeat customers, it is because we have developed a show which maximizes the ability of folks to do some comparison shopping all in one stop, to kick the tires and meet with business owners, and often even the manufacturers, to get their questions answered.  Many seeds have been planted on the floor of the Forum that have blossomed into relationships between vendors and customers that have benefited folks from throughout northern Maine and New Brunswick.”

There is also tremendous diversity among the products and services showcased,” added Goff.  “There is a lot of farm, field and forest implements, and plenty of power equipment for work and play on display, but there are also contractors and craftsmen – including a large display from our Amish friends and neighbors.  In addition, there are industrial suppliers, feed and livestock providers, lawn and snow equipment dealers, financial services, government agencies, and non-profits and much, much more!”

Among the new additions to this 36th anniversary celebration are forestry equipment dealer Frank Martin and Sons, animal feed, garden, feed and farm goods company Aroostook Milling Supply, global industrial supplier BDI, Powers Roofing and Sheet Metal and more!  The Agri-Business Trade Fair will be held at the Presque Isle Forum Saturday April 2nd from 9am to 6pm and Sunday April 3rd from 9am to 3pm.  For more information, contact Fort Fairfield Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tim Goff at 472-3802 or tgoff@forfairfield.org
