The Maine Lobster Festival runs from July 31 to August 4 in Rockland Maine, a five-day celebration where more than 25,000 pounds of lobsters are served each year.
This year marks the 72nd annual nonprofit festival and highlights include the Great International Lobster Crate Race, Maine Sea Goddess Pageant & Coronation, Seafood Cooking Contest and The Big Parade.
Around 30,000 people attend the festival each year over the five days and the festival is run by more than 1,300 volunteers from the community and “from away.” Proceeds are distributed to groups, charities and organizations throughout the Rockland area.
The Festival site, at Rockland’s Harbor Park, is easy to find. Rockland is four hours by car from Boston and less than two hours from Portland. This year, you can take the Rally Bus from a number of locations throughout New England!
