It was a tough process, be we have narrowed the field to five finalists in the Whoopie Pie of the Future student art contest. The contest, in conjunction with the Maine State Museum, asks the questions “What will the whoopie pie look like in 2117?” The answers from our five finalists can be found at the Whoopie Pie of the Future page where you can vote for your favorite (once per day) until midnight July 7th. They’ll also be on display at the Maine Whoopie Pie Festival and then at the Maine State Museum starting on July 11th where the public can vote for their favorite. On July 29th, the winner will be announced at a free Family Saturday at the Maine State Museum in Augusta. The winner will receive a Maine State Museum Family Membership and $200 to spend on art supplies and whoopie pies!

Come to the 2017 Maine Whoopie Pie Festival and enjoy Maine’s best 80’s band:

Destroy Them My Robots


Destroy Them My Robots is a band trapped in the 1980’s with no intentions of ever leaving. Playing classics by legends such as The Cars, Styxx, Billy Idol, A-Ha, Prince, Duran Duran, and more, they can transport an audience back to 1985 faster then a DeLorean with a functioning Flux Capacitor. DTMR was founded in 2010, when the ghost of Mr. Roboto demanded they bring these hit songs back to the people of Maine.
