  • Fisherman Festival lobster crate race in Boothbay Harbor. Opening of the season in April.

One of the ways that Boothbay area residents know that spring is just around the corner is with the celebration of the Fishermen's Festival, which will take place on April 24-26 of this year. This local celebration focuses on the region's commercial fishermen and their families and the important role they have played in the community for generations and proudly continue today. Festival activates include the annual Miss Shrimp Princess Pageant, Codfish Relay Race, Trap Hauling Competition, Lobster Crate Running, Bait Shoveling, Tug of War, a Fish Fry, Blessing of the Fleet and more!

We hope that as the weather continues to warm up that you can join us for some or all of the great activities and events coming up in the weeks and months ahead.
