Festivals & Fairs
Artists and artisans have flocked to Maine for generations. The natural beauty of the state is the greatest muse to create and Maine hosts many arts festivals and craft fairs to show off our state’s talent. If you’re looking for music, there are many festivals throughout the state to enjoy rock, country, blues, big band, and folk music.
Other annual festivals in Maine show off the state’s great food. The Lobster Festival is five days of fun and feasting on the MidCoast! This annual event takes place the first weekend of August, from Wednesday through Sunday. Another famous food festival is the Machias Blueberry Festival. Downeast Maine rolls out the blue carpet each August with food, crafts, entertainment, contests and all things blueberry.
Maine can proudly boast of its 24 licensed agricultural fairs. The agricultural fairs are the best educational entertainment you can find for your entire family. You can experience any number of Maine’s Country Fairs during the season, which runs July to early October.
