An Introduction to Midcoast Maine
You can get a sense of the psyche of Midcoast Maine — the coastal region that runs from Brunswick to Searsport — simply by examining the calendar of annual events held here. Winter brings the Christmas by the Sea celebration and the National Toboggan Championships. Warmer weather sprouts events such as the Fishermen's Festival, where Miss Shrimp Princess is crowned, the annual Lobster Boat Races, and Windjammer Days. At the height of summer, Midcoast Maine is home to the Maine Blueberry Festival and the Maine Lobster Festival. And when the leaves begin to turn, an annual Fall Foliage Festival and a Festival of Scarecrows mark this season's splendor as well.
In essence, Midcoast Maine is all about everything that makes Maine delicious. From the vibrancy of the changing seasons to the majesty of rocky ledges standing starkly against the azure ocean, from the loveliness of tiny island towns to the palpable energy of fishing villages, this is a region that is at once exhilarating and soothing.
