1:00 - 6:00PM

Featuring LIVE music, food trucks, local breweries, a lobster bake, interactive demonstrations, a marine life touch tank & more!

Event theme.

"Lobsters in paradise" is the theme of this year's Auburn Lobster Festival! The music will put you in a tropical state of mind - our headliner is THE "premiere Jimmy Buffett tribute band!" So, wear your best Hawaiian shirt, grab a lei at the door, and let's get ready for summer in Maine!


How it began.

A lobster festival in central Maine? It started as an April Fool's joke on the City of Auburn Facebook page, and now it's a reality! Auburn may not be a coastal town, but we LOVE Maine, and we wholeheartedly support the Maine lobster industry. So, join us on May 11 in beautiful downtown Auburn, along the banks of the Androscoggin River for the Auburn Lobster Festival, featuring LIVE music, Maine craft brews, food trucks, lobster, and lots of fun for all ages.
