2020 Maine Lobster Festival Cancelled
The Maine Lobster Festival has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 Pandemic in hopes that we would be able to safely offer our event to visitors from all over the world. Our President and executive board have met with state and local officials, our board has been monitoring CDC, Federal and state guidelines, and we feel that the safest strategy for everyone is to cancel the 2020 festival. We will miss seeing our tens of thousands of guests, our thousand plus volunteers, our artists, vendors and business partners, and all of our local neighbors.
The Maine Lobster Festival is a non-profit organization that is deeply committed to the support of our local community, donating our profits in a variety of ways. Despite the lack of a 2020 event, we plan on continuing our college scholarship program to help support local students in their pursuit of higher education. Our hope is to adapt some of our other work to highlight our local community and the Maine Lobster Industry over the course of the year. Please follow our Facebook page for up to date information.
We have not made this decision lightly and are deeply disappointed. Yet we know it is the right decision to keep everyone safe and healthy. We are confident that we will be able to greet you all safely at our event August 4-8, 2021.
We look forward to celebrating with you next year!
