Union is located in Knox County along the mid-coast of Maine. This small town of approximately 2,000 is situated in the beautiful countryside, surrounded by peaceful rolling hills and lakes. It's known for being home to one of Maine's best agricultural fairs, which usually takes place between August 21st - 27th. The fair features carnival rides, food vendors, live entertainment, agricultural exhibits, harness racing, a demolition derby - even a watermelon seed-spitting contest. The Maine Wild Blueberry Festival takes place in Union at the same time as the fair. It's great fun for the entire family. The town of Union lies in the heart of Maine's central coast, which boasts 14 lighthouses, many islands and navigable harbors. Other activities in the area include fishing, boating, sailing, hiking, biking, antiquing, shopping, dining on delicious seafood (this area of the coast is famous for its lobsters.) Knox County was incorporated in 1860 and was the last county to be incorporated in the state of Maine. Rockland is the county seat and also includes the town of Camden, a popular summer destination.

Union Weather & Climate

The southern coast of Maine near the Penobscot Bay has very comfortable summers and falls, cold winters with frequent thaws and late, changeable springs. Summers are mild to cool by most people's standards, with very few summer nights too warm and humid for sleeping. Autumn has the greatest number of sunny days along the coast and is perfect for fall sightseeing. Winters are cold, but not as severe as the northeastern part of the state along the Canadian border. The White Mountains, to the northwest, keep considerable snow from reaching the Portland area and also help moderate the temperature. Normal precipitation is remarkably uniform throughout the year. Winds are generally light with the strongest being in the months of March and November. Temperatures well below freezing are reported each year, and cold waves sometimes come along with strong winds. Blizzards are possible but infrequent in Maine.
