Each June, Dover-Foxcroft hosts the Maine Whoopie Pie Festival — an event which brings in thousands of tourists and locals. Guests can chow down on whoopie pies and participate in (or just watch) the many activities which take place during the day-long festival. There are whoopie pie eating contests, Clydesdale horse carriage rides, races, live entertainment and an array of fun activities for kids.

Dover-Foxcroft is approximately a two-hour commute from Portland, so if you’ll be vacationing in Maine during June, make sure to check out the festival’s website beforehand for the date. It’s a purely Maine experience, and it is just one of the many fabulous summer food festivals which occur between June-August. Other well-known festivals include the Yarmouth Clam Festival, the Maine Lobster Festival, and there are also several blueberry festivals. Out of everything for which Maine is famous, fresh seafood, blueberry pie and whoopie pies are certainly at the top of the list.

You can be sure you don’t need to look far to find tasty sweets in a state where the official state treat is the whoopie pie.
