Cumberland Harness Information
The state of Maine has a long and storied history of agricultural fairs and harness racing, dating back to the early 19th century. The very first Cumberland Fair was held in October in 1868 with a 1/3 mile track laid out and constructed just a few years later.
Previous to the track being built, farmers raced each other down Main Street.
In 1938 a new grandstand was constructed and plans for a clay racetrack were approved in 1941.
In 1948 night time harness racing came to life, as lights were installed around the historic oval.
This year marks the 153rd season of harness racing in Cumberland, Maine.
