Nearly four decades ago, residents of the Kennebec Valley first came together to celebrate the river that unifies our region. What started with a carefree race down the Mighty Kennebec River has transformed into the top-notch two week family festival we celebrate today!
The Whatever Family Festival will kick off with the Blistered Fingers Bluegrass Festival in Litchfield and ends with fireworks on July 4th. This two week long festival has events throughout the Kennebec Valley, from Gardiner to Winthrop and everywhere in between. The Whatever Family Festival is celebrating it’s 40th Anniversary with new excitement!
New this year, introducing:
Kennebec River Day
June 24, 2017 11:00AM - 3:00 PM
Back to the River!!!
The Kennebec Valley Chamber in the past years has organized the infamous Kid’s Day in Capitol Park, but new this year Kid’s Day has been transformed into the Kennebec River Day! The Kennebec River Day will be held at Mill Park along the mighty Kennebec River. The Kennebec River Day will still host the kid’s events but will now also have activities targeted to ALL AGES! Children will be occupied with games and activities while adults can spend time at the homemade craft vendors or at The Margarita’s Tent. There will be activities throughout Augusta Downtown such as beer tasting and wagon rides. The Chamber is excited to bring everyone together for a day in Augusta with activities for all. The possibilities are endless for this day in Mill Park.
If you are looking to be involved in the day, contact the Chamber at 623-4559
