44th Annual Central Maine Egg Festival

The Central Maine Egg Festival Committee and the Town of Pittsfield are pleased to welcome our many guests to the 44th Annual Central Maine Egg Festival from Monday, July 11 – Saturday, July 16, 2016. Our theme this year is ""Egg"-stra-Terrestrial.

The Town of Pittsfield is home to the Egg Festival.  A quiet industrial community of less than 5,000 people, Pittsfield welcomes more than 35,000 visitors each July.  The Egg Festival is very important to the town and region for community and economic development reasons.  During this week, people are able to visit, network and have family get-togethers.  It is a time that we showcase the community and region.  In addition, it is great fun and a positive experience for children and families.  It is part of the region’s heritage and tradition.

The Festival prides itself on providing a venue for area non-profit groups to come together and fundraise for their programs.  Literally hundreds of volunteers and non-profits gather every July to host a fun event for families and children while raising funds for their causes.
