The Great Sardine and Maple Leaf Drop


Join us for the annual New Year’s Eve Great Sardine and Maple Leaf Drop in Bank Square, downtown Eastport. See for 2018 details.

From the third story of the Tides Institute & Museum of Art, a giant red maple leaf will be lowered to commemorate the Canadian new year at midnight, Atlantic time (11 pm ET), while the New Year’s Eve Brass Band will play a rousing “O Canada,” (singing along is encouraged). At midnight Eastern time, an 8-foot sardine will take the plunge, as the brass band plays “Auld Lang Syne.” There is typically live music playing from 9 pm until just before midnight. Don’t forget to kiss the sardine for luck in the year ahead!
