About the Festival

What do you get...

...when you mix nine tents, the world’s greatest lobster cooker, a sea goddess, a big parade, top notch entertainment, an international crate race, fine art, talented crafts people and vendors, US Navy ship tours, all you can eat pancakes, free shuttle service, US Coast Guard Station tours, professional and amateur cooking contests, marine heritage, road races, kids events, over 20,000 pounds of lobster, PLUS over 1,000 volunteers and a group of dedicated directors?


For real small town fun with big time entertainment and events, The Maine Lobster Festival has it all! Beginning the day after the gates close, the directors begin to work on the next year’s event.

For 11 months, the volunteer Board of Directors is busy planning, and for three weeks, volunteers start to help out and get the grounds set up, and for 5 great days, the festival is presented to our visitors in hopes that this year will exceed all our expectations, and YOURS!

And of course for several days after, we carefully put the festival away, sweep the grounds and sit back and say WOW!! We really did it!! No one gets paid for their efforts - our reward is the satisfaction of mutual involvement and the pleasure of knowing that the proceeds of our hard work and the hard work of our Volunteers helps support our community in many ways. We all are tired at the end, but ready to do it all over again the next year!!

Come join us!
