Maine Lobster Festival

August 1 – 5, 2018

The focus of the festival is, of course, fresh hot Maine lobster! Enjoy your lobster dinner, that is served with award-winning Cabot butter, under the Main Eating Tent while enjoying a view of Penobscot Bay. What could be better on a warm August day? This an example of our Lobster Roll that is served in the Lobster Cafe located near the entrance of the Main Eating Tent. We added a new Lobster Mac’n Cheese, Lobster Bisque, Lobster Stuffed Risotto Balls and Lobster Won-tons! Come quick, cause they won’t be around for very long!


 Last year the Lobster Festival cooked and served 19,000 pounds of luscious lobster was prepared in our gigantic cooker on the shore (that’s a show in itself!). In addition to lobster, you can choose from steamed and fried clams, fried Maine shrimp, shrimp cocktail, steamed mussels in wine and vegetable sauce, and many varieties of traditional summer fair food, all prepared in the traditional Maine way.
