Old Port Festival

Old Port Festival

Portland observes the first weekend in June with a giant puppet parade and a half dozen stages of live music (heavy on roots and rock) that effectively take over the city’s cobblestone historic district. Portland is a foodie town above all, and some 50 food vendors include sidewalk versions of some of the city’s best restaurants.
