BCC Logo Events Calendar

The Moosehead Lake Region of Maine has been an outdoor man's paradise for decades. From sitting back and relaxing, to being out in the woods, to enjoying the local culture, many people keep coming back to the region year after year, generation after generation. While in the area, we encourage you to become part of the culture by attending some of the local events.

Below, please find a list of activities and events that are annual events in the region. Some events move around the calendar slightly year to year so we list them in the month they occur. If you are interested in staying with us for a particular event, just check with us for specific dates.

In addition to this general calendar, please check out our seasonal activity pages too: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
