Union and her sister towns of Appleton, Hope, Waldoboro, Washington, and Warren lie about 15 miles West of Rockland off Route 17 at the center of Midcoast Maine’s inland agricultural region.
Driving along area roads, you’re greeted by open fields, stately barns and picturesque farm houses, proof that this area not only remembers its rich agricultural past but continues to embrace it.
The greater Union area is known for blueberry fields, dairy farms, apple orchards, wood lots and sparkling lakes and ponds. Travel among the hills and enjoy the breathtaking views and a backdrop of low coastal mountains, rolling hills and quiet valleys each town provides their own interpretation of a classic northern New England village setting.
Nestled in each village and among the outskirts are talented artisans, knowledgeable service providers and community enrichment organizations, all dedicated to making your visit to this area an enjoyable one.
Each year, the Union Fair brings people from all over the world to Maine to experience an authentic New England county fair complete with livestock shows, local food and wine, and rides.
