Not only does the Maine Lobster Festival attract thousands of people to Maine's Midcoast region, it also has a long tradition of giving back to our local community.

In recent years, the Festival has given more than $500,000 to the local community through our support of the Maine Lighthouse Museum, the Bob Gagnon Cancer Care Center at Penobscot Bay Medical Center, many improvements and supplies provided to the City of Rockland and more.

The 64th Annual Maine Lobster Festival takes place August 3 through August 7, 2011 at Harbor Park in Rockland! We hope to see you there!
