Kingfield is home to the Ski Museum of Maine, where you can learn about the history of Maine's ski industry and get to know prominent Mainers in the ski world. Kingfield’s neighboring town of Carrabassett Valley is home to 4,000-foot Sugarloaf Mountain Resort, which is Maine's largest ski area. In Kingfield, you can join up with snowmobile trails that connect to hundreds of miles of routes. The town also has the southernmost trailhead on the Maine Huts and Trails 30-mile network of groomed, backcountry paths for non-motorized recreation. You can also go biking, walking, running or cross-country skiing on the Narrow Gauge Pathway that follows the Carrabassett River for six miles on a former rail bed. In the spring and summer, you can go fly fishing on the Carrabassett River.


Kingfield natives and brothers Francis and Freeland Stanley invented America's first steam-powered car, and The Stanley Museum documents the history of the Stanley family's ingenuity. You can see exhibits of the "Stanley Steamer" automobiles, steam- and chain-driven engines, early 1900s black-and-white photographs, and vintage equipment from the Stanley Dry Plate Co.


In June, you can attend the Kingfield POPS to hear the Bangor Symphony Orchestra and Maine's top folk and traditional musicians. The event coincides with a free Festival of the Arts downtown that features more live music.

Whatever you choose to do in Kingfield and Carrabassett Valley, Maine promises an experience you won’t soon forget.
