Skowhegan Moose Festival
June 8-10, 2018

On Saturday, June 9, the 2018 Moose Permit Lottery will come to the historic Skowhegan Fairgrounds in Skowhegan, Maine—a fitting tribute to the Skowhegan State Fair’s 200th anniversary and a fantastic kickoff to summer.

To celebrate, nonprofit Main Street Skowhegan is coordinating the weekend-long Skowhegan Moose Festival. The festival will include exhibits, demonstrations, competitions, kids’ activities, local food trucks, live music, and more.
