Maine Lobster Festival

Maine Lobster Festival

Rockland’s nearly 70-year summer tradition revolves around the world’s largest lobster cooker and the 20,000 pounds of succulent lobster it boils each year. Sure, there are also bands and a fun run, but heaping seafood platters are the draw (the spectacle of the chow tent was immortalized in David Foster Wallace’s essay, “Consider the Lobster”).
