71st Celebration Of All Things Lobster

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:
