Fair fare – fun with food festivals

There’s a lot going on in the summertime here in Maine.

There’s all of the outdoors stuff, of course. There are mountains to be climbed and trails to be hiked. There are oceans and lakes and rivers begging to be swum in or kayaked or sailed upon. There’s even the nigh-ubiquitous ritual of heading “upta camp,” where you can do some, most or even all of these things depending on where you go.

Or if you’re leaning towards the arts, there are a multitude of options for you to take in, whether you’re looking for concerts or live theatre or film festivals. There’s a whole lot on that side of things as well.

But you might not be as familiar with just how many food-based festivals are happening all around the state of Maine over the course of the summer. These events – some taking place in just a single day, others clocking in at a week or longer – are devoted to celebrating various foodstuffs that are inherent and integral parts of life here in Vacationland.

We’re not in time for all of this summer’s festivals – for instance, the always-exceptional Maine Whoopie Pie Festival took place back on June 23 – but there are still all manner of tasty trips there for the taking, with a variety of festivals playing out over the next few weeks.

Here’s a look at just some of what’s to come.

Sick of shoveling yet? I bet you are! With the recent glut of freshly fallen powder clogging up and complicating every aspect of our lives, it can be difficult to see beyond the current situation and imagine a time when the weather will be great and the beer will be plentiful. Have no fear, the Three Pint Stance is here to help you daydream about summer drinking!

So, after you finish clearing off the driveway for the seventh time this week, take a gander at these summer beer events for 2017 and consider clearing your calendar!
