Each Spring we make a list of the year’s events we’re looking to attend, sort of like a summer to-do list. Some years we’ve even listed them on this site. I’d like to say we do this for our readers, but honestly we do it for ourselves. It’s an easy place to store the list that we can get to from our smart phones.
There are many, many events and festivals held in Maine each year. “Our list” though covers the events that we’d attend, meaning they need to have family activities for our two kids, have good food (I’m mean if you’re going to drive an hour or two, to spend a few hours at it, there had better be some good chow there), and within a two hour drive from Portland (that’s the limit the kids will remain entertained by the games on their electronic gizmos.)
Our 2014 list can be found at the following links:
The list will grow over time as we stumble upon new events, so check back often. We typically visit these links ourselves each Friday, beginning in June, to plan out the weekend. If you know of any events we haven’t yet listed, PLEASE let us know in the comments below and we’ll add them to the list!
