Whatever Family Festival

Over 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 three-week family festival we celebrate today! This year the festivities run from June 13th through July 4th and are available throughout the Kennebec Valley. We are proud to present hundreds of activities for all to enjoy, from a bluegrass festival to craft fairs and waterfront concerts to theater shows and more.

Whatever Family Festival

In past years, the Kennebec Valley Chamber has organized the Kid’s Day in Capitol Park, but, new last year, the Kid’s Day in Capitol Park was transformed to Kennebec River Day. The Kennebec River Day brings the tradition back to the Kennebec River as it is held at Mill Park. The Kennebec River Day is an event for all ages, with games and activities for children, craft vendors, food trucks, live music and entertainment. New this year, the Kennebec River Day will coincide with the Kennebec River Brewfest, a brewfest focusing on Maine breweries. The KV Chamber is excited to bring everyone together for a day in Augusta with activities for all.

This community tradition in 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 during the Whatever Family Festival!
