The first Maine Lobster Festival started back in 1947 and since then has flourished into one of the largest internationally recognized seafood celebrations. What started as just a way to get locals interested in Midcoast Maine, this non-profit organization has given more thank $500,000 back to the community. The festival is a fully volunteer based event with people from all over the world traveling to Rockland Maine for a once in a lifetime experience.
The Fest starts on August 1st and runs until the 5th.
Some of the events of the week include a Parade on Main Street:
Carnival rides and games:
