-To encourage Lincolnville merchants and organizations to participate and showcase themselves on the day of the fair.

-To offer artists rooted in the community an opportunity to showcase their artistic talents, to build an audience and to offer community organizations the opportunity to provide information about their programs and services.

-To foster and strengthen relationships between the community at large and the neighborhood in order to celebrate our diversity and promote a strong sense of community among diverse people.
