6 Ways to Celebrate Spring

Don’t miss these upcoming events coming to Greater Portland

Winter is melting and Greater Portland is shedding its snowsuit ready to spring into some warmer weather. It’s not just the sunshine that sets this season apart – Spring kicks-off many rites of passage in Greater Portland. Live music wafts in the salty air, outdoor dining lines the streets, and food trucks pull up to reclaim their spots. So, what do you say? Let’s get the party started...


What’s better than beer and baseball? Come relax at a Sea Dogs game while you munch on fan-favorites like: clam cakes, fried potato wedges, and of course Sea Dog Biscuits. On June 21st another treat will be added to the list. For the first time Portland Sea Dogs will be changing their name to the Maine Whoopie Pies to celebrate Maine’s official snack with specials, games, and locally-made Whoopie Pies on demand.

AA Affiliate to the Boston Red Sox. Play all home games at Hadlock Field. The road to the Red Sox runs through Portland.


With over 75 vendors selling handmade and vintage home items, you are sure to find your shopping fix at the Vintage Bazaar. There will be plenty to keep you smiling all day long like live music, libations, and food trucks. You’ll come for the up-cycled goodies and antique treasures, but want to stay for the party!


Watch kites of every shape and color fly over Portland’s harbor for Bug Light’s annual Kite Festival. Family, friends, kiddos, and pawed pals are all welcome for a day of fun in the sun at Bug Light Park. Join the annual barbeque or just set up camp and soak up the sights of Casco Bay and the historical Portland Breakwater Lighthouse.

Bring the family, friends, and pets for a day of old-fashioned,kite-flying fun at Bug Light Park.


Come get your groove on by the water! Check out Thompson’s Point on the banks of the Fore River and Maine Savings Pavilion at Rock Row which is kicking-off their first season. You’re not going to want to miss the talent taking the stage; everyone from Alice Cooper to Third Eye Blind & Jimmy Eat World will be here ready to rock out.


If you’re looking for a little culture while you’re here – look no further than Portland Museum of Art’s next premiere exhibit In The Vanguard, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, 1950-1969. This exhibit launch features an experimental school in rural Maine that transformed art, craft, and design in the 20th century to define the aesthetics of the nation’s counterculture.

Memorial Day Weekend | May 25 to May 27

Guess who's back in action? Memorial Day weekend kicks the season into high gear and restaurants and shops - closed for a break over the winter - will reopen their doors. Lounge outside in the sun and get your seafood fix with a little Maine lobster. Boats will be back in the water and ready to sail you off into adventure - whether you are looking for a whale watch or to experience our lighthouses from a new angle. You won't want to miss any of the action. Come celebrate the season like a Mainer: local brew in one hand, lobster roll in the other.

A trip to Maine is not complete without a traditional lobster roll. Packed with Maine lobster into a bun... what's not to love.
