The Maine Whoopie Pie Festival will be celebrating its 5th anniversary on June 28th from 10am to 3pm in downtown Dover-Foxcroft and event organizers are planning to make it a celebration to remember. Patrick Myers, an organizer of the festival, says there is a lot of work underway already for the festival, “In partnership with our sponsors Bangor Savings Bank, Garelick Farms, Z107.3, the Maine Kitchen Cooking School at RM Flagg’s, and the Center Theatre we’re going to have more events and activities for kids and families, more live music and entertainment, and of course more Whoopie Pies!”
Events at the 2014 Festival include the ‘Earn Your Whoopie Pie’ 3k Race and kids 1K fun Run, entertainment by Conjuring Carroll and comedy-juggler Bryson Lang, the Varney Agency Kids Zone will have bounce
houses, bungee jumps, pony rides, and games all day long. And of course, downtown Dover-Foxcroft will be filled with artists and craftspeople to help you find something to take home with you to commemorate the event. But what brings people to the Festival is the Whoopie Pies! The Festival promises to have dozens of bakers with thousands of whoopie pies of every shape and size. For the first time this year, the festival will also be crowning the festival Big Whoop. “We’re holding a contest sponsored by Will’s Shop ‘n Save and Freedom House Bed and Breakfast to crown the festival ‘Big Whoop.’ Myers said. “This lucky person will get a truly massive prize package along with lots of honors the day of the festival.” Details of the contest are being closely guarded, but will be announced in the month of June.
