2023 Katahdin Area Winterfest Flyer
All trails lead to the Trails End Festival in Millinocket, ME this September 16th, 17th, and 18th 2022!
Trails End Festival was established in 2007. This now annual festival held in Millinocket is a celebration of the end of the Appalachian Trail, Katahdin region, the outdoor recreation community, and spending time with friends and family during three days of music, food, and fun!
The festival organizers realize that visitors come for many different reasons, but the majority come to enjoy the vast natural resources of theKatahdin Region. The committee appreciates those who; hike our mountains, paddle our lakes and rivers, and walk, bike, cross country ski or snowmobile on our trails.
Join us this September for three days of free music, food, and fun as we celebrate all of those who make the Katahdin region their destination.
The festival would not be possible without our generous donors and sponsors. Thank you!
We are VERY pleased to announce that the Millinocket Marathon & Half has joined forces with the Mount Desert Island Marathon, Half & Relay to create the first ever Maine Sea to Summit Race Series, featuring a special finishers medallion!
This FREE event was founded by Gary Allen in 2015 to help our town. Runner’s World Magazine picked up the story shortly after our first edition and the rest is…. as they say, history! Downeast Magazine featured a story entitled Marathon Man in their December 2016 edition that talks about the thought behind our event.
The only requirement for runners is that they support local businesses and contribute to the Katahdin region in some way. Participants are also strongly encouraged to make lodging plans now as many properties fill to capacity very quickly.
