Kids Pedal Tractor Pull at the Union Fair.As you sit in Sherman Park you begin to wonder if they have moved the poultry barn a little closer. First you hear the cackling of hens and then the rooster chimes in. No, you are not imagining things; it is time for our popular rooster crowing and hen cackling competition. Children, and a few brave adults, show off their imitative skills with their best poultry renditions.

Union Fair is proud to sponsor contests for children that require no specific skills other than the ability and desire to have fun. We have blueberry spitting for distance, blueberry bubblegum Lots of farm animals to see at the Union Fair.blowing for size, and blueberry pie eating for speed. You may sense a theme; after all we are also the Maine Wild Blueberry Festival as well. In case blueberries are not your thing we also have pig catching, baking, tractor peddling and the increasing popular scavenger hunt for the young and a more challenging version for the not so young.
Our contests are simple back to basics family fun and while our prizes for competing may not be big, the smiles of participants, and their audience, are huge. Check out our schedule for the full listing of competitions. Whether you are a contestant or observer, we dare you not to have fun!

Bicycle Give-Aways
Each year, at the Union Fair, youth have the opportunity to go home with their very own bicycle and helmet.
Thanks to the generosity of businesses, organizations and fair vendors donations are made to purchase new bicycles for the give-a-ways. Three categories, by age, have the chance to enter a drawing to win one of the bikes and a helmet. Three drawings are made on three separate days with bikes for girls and boys in each age group. Donations come from throughout our regional area of Lincoln, Knox and Waldo counties.

Drawing days, times and locations for sign-ups and drawings are announced on the Fairground and usually occur after the popular pig scrambles.
Scavenger Hunt
Who doesn't like a little adventure and some sleuthing fun? For those who are looking for a fun way to take a tour through the barns and exhibits, Union Fair has Scavenger Hunts that will lead "adventurers" on a trip around the grounds. Younger hunters receive a Passport full of clues to find stickers hidden around the grounds. A little prize awaits at the end of the trail, with a chance to win the Grand Prize. For full-fledged seekers, a more extensive and "puzzling" hunt exists. Follow clues, solve puzzles, and see what others don't see to find the Code to open the Blueberry Cryptex. This hunt can be solved in an afternoon, or could be spread over several days. You are guaranteed to see things you've never noticed at the Fair before. Be on the lookout for new additions to the Quests!
Farm Style Games
You don't have to be brought up in a barn to chase a pig, get hay chaff down your neck, or break some eggs… Just join in with the Barnyard Games for some old fashioned fun! Various Farm themed contests are held for those daring enough to try. One of the highlights of the week is the Pig Scramble for kids. Everyone squeals with delight at this event. See the contest schedule for times and locations.
