Fiddlers & Fiddleheads Festival


Live acoustic bluegrass and other genre music Local crafters, artisans, and community non-profit food vendors, many featuring fiddlehead delicacies, children's games.

Friends of Katahdin Woods and Waters is excited to be one of the sponsors for the fifth annual Fiddlers & Fiddleheads Fest, taking place Saturday, May 19th at the Lumbermen’s Museum in Patten. You’re invited to join this celebration of spring in the north woods. Musicians from near and far will be playing throughout the day alongside local artisans, craftsmen, and food vendors.

Thanks to the generosity of Emera and Case Professional Services, this year’s festival will be headlined by the Muddy Marsh Ramblers. The festival lineup will play on two stages: the Maine Stage and the Log Jam Stage, with performances from Gus Lacasse, Belfast Bay Fiddlers, John Birmingham RFD Band, Donna Chase, and Hannah Boone. If you play an instrument or sing yourself, then come prepared to share a tune at the afternoon jam session scheduled from 4 – 5 PM at the Log Jam stage.

Food will be served throughout the day, with all the proceeds from the festival vendors benefiting local non-profits. If you’ve got a great dish involving fiddleheads, send your best fern-friendly recipe to the curator at the Lumbermen’s Museum and you may be entered into a cook-off to crown 2018’s “Cast Iron Chef”.

The festival will also include a childrens’ area featuring throwback games from the 20th century. The event promises to be fun for the whole family and we hope you’ll join us.
