Northern Maine Fair Tobacco Policy
Presque Isle Maine
The Northern Maine Fair is dedicated to providing a fun, safe and exciting cultural fair experience that promotes and supports healthy communities and tobacco-free environments.
Because of the new state workplace and public place law requirements effective July 1, 2010 and the acknowledged health risks from tobacco and second-hand smoke exposure, it is our policy to provide a smoke-free fair effective July 2014.
This policy applies to all attendees including employees, vendors, contractors and visitors. This policy will be posted on the fair web site, fair brochure, and promotional materials. Appropriate signage will be posted throughout the fair grounds
Smoking tobacco, medical marijuana and electronic nicotine devices are prohibited as outlined below;


Smoking is allowed only in designated smoking areas for ages 18 and above
Youth age 17 and younger are not allowed within 50 ft of designated smoking areas.
Vendors are prohibited from displaying or selling tobacco products or electronic nicotine devices.
Tobacco litter is prohibited on Northern Maine Fair grounds.
Maine law prohibits smoking medical marijuana in public places.


The Northern Maine Fair will support anyone who wishes to quit tobacco by referring them to the Maine Tobacco Help Line 1-800-207-1230
The fair committee acknowledges that achieving tobacco-free events and environments requires strong leadership and a commitment to environmental responsibility and role modeling for our children. Its success will depend upon the courtesy and cooperation of all.
