Your Freshest Guide to the Maine Lobster Festival


What on the Menu?

As you may have guessed, lobster is the star of the show at the Maine Lobster Festival! However, that isn’t all you’ll find on the menu.


Make the most of your foodie excursion by arriving early and coming hungry. You can start your morning with an all-you-can-eat breakfast, featuring pancakes made with fresh-picked blueberries, smoked sausage, juice, coffee, and milk. From Thursday through Sunday, breakfast is served in the AM.

The Maine Course

A day of celebrating will work up an appetite, and the dinner options at the festival guarantee to satisfy your hunger. In 2018, more than 19,000 pounds of fresh-caught Maine lobster were cooked and served. Steamed and fresh clams, fried Maine shrimp, shrimp cocktail, and steamed mussels are also available. You also need to get a taste of the best blueberry cobbler in the state, so save room for dessert!

Let the Good Times Roll with These Single Day Events
