The Union Fair was presented an award for the renovation of an old building, and turning that building into a venue used to exhibit and recognize a growing local industry by the Maine Association of Agricultural Fairs.

The award for “Most Unique Addition to a Fair” was given to the Union Fair for the new Maine Wine Pavilion. The plaque was presented to Holly and Elmer “Buddy” Savage, owners of Savage Oakes Vineyard and Winery, to be hung in the Maine Wine Pavilion.

At the 2011 Union Fair the award-winning Maine Wine Pavilion will expand to include Maine Artisan cheeses as well as Maine wines. The Wine Pavilion will be open Aug. 21 to Aug. 27 from noon to 8 p.m. and visitors must be 21 to enter.
