Festivals & Events

The many festivals, fairs, and other annual events that make visiting Aroostook County a unique experience are derived from this rich cultural heritage. Those who call Aroostook home have always found plenty of cause for celebration. The Acadian Festival in Madawaska celebrates the Acadian roots of the St. John Valley, while the Midsommer Celebration follows in the footsteps of the traditional Swedish celebration of the summer solstice. Other festivals celebrate Aroostook's natural resources and wide open landscapes - Patten's Pioneer Days festival features a woodsmen competition, while Houlton's Potato Feast Days honors the coming harvest of our largest agricultural crop and the Crown of Maine Balloon Festival provides a unique view of it all.

We take pride in our county, and we invite you to take the opportunity to see all that we have to offer.
