BANGOR – Get ready to fill your belly with delicious beer, wine and wings on the Waterfront this weekend.

The Best of the North Festival – an event born of a collaborative effort by the Greater Bangor Convention and Visitors Bureau (GBCVB) and the United Way of Eastern Maine - is set to take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Bangor Waterfront.

The festival represents the coming together of three unique events – the CVB’s Wine on the Waterfront and Tap into Summer and the United Way’s Wingfest Maine. The Best of the North Festival will also feature local music and the addition of a kid zone, creating a family-friendly hybrid of both organizations’ events.

All told, there will be 28 brewers, 20 wing vendors and a dozen purveyors of wine and spirits in attendance – more than enough variety for a fan of any or all of these wonderful things. Tickets are $28 per person for just wings, $50 per person for the wings, wine and beer combo ticket or $70 per person for the VIP ticket; they can be purchased at
