Whatever Family Festival

Whatever Logo 2019

June 12 - July 4, 2019

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! Festivities span over three weeks, ending on the 4th of July, with events available throughout the Kennebec Valley. 

In 2019, we are proud to present hundreds of activities for all to enjoy from a bluegrass festival to craft fairs, waterfront concerts to sports tournaments, and the signature Kennebec River Day and Kennebec River Brewfest on June 29th!  The Whatever Family Festival is a distinctive opportunity to experience the Kennebec Valley through a variety of free events.

This magnificent marvel of Central Maine would not be possible without the support and dedication of over 100 area businesses. Whatever you decide to do, you are sure to have fun at the Whatever Family Festival!
