Don’t miss Millinocket’s Independence Day Festival!

The Town of Millinocket Events Committee presents the annual Independence Day Festival, July 4th-6th!

There will be food, music, artisans/gifts, activities, a parade, 5K Color Run/walk (click here to register), a Cornhole Tourney, (click here to register), and an all-out fireworks show!

Do you remember the days of incredible Fourth of July celebrations in downtown Millinocket? Thousands of people would line Penobscot Ave, enjoying a great parade, strolling the street, and reuniting with friends and classmates. Eventually, they would check out the music and vendors in Veterans Park, the smells of cotton candy, hot dogs, and onion rings filling the air. All the while, they would be excitedly anticipating an outstanding fireworks display against the night sky, where kids would brandish sparklers under the stars. We remember, too. This year marks the formation of an Events Committee to bring this event to life for our community. Mark your calendar for this 3-day, star-spangled festival celebration.
