Tomorrow is the big day! Whoopie Pie Time!
There are several ways to enter the Festival. If you are driving, the easiest way is to follow the signs to park at the Piscataquis County Fairgrounds. From there, you can take the free shuttle directly to the festival gate. You can purchase your entry to the Whoopie Pie Zone (gotta get those samples early!), get your tokens, and away you go! Please know that you won’t be able to drive directly through downtown Dover so you’ll want to plan a route that keeps you out of downtown.
If you are walking, you can enter through that same gate on River Street, or you can come through the Dave’s World/US Cellular gate around the corner from the Center Theatre, or the Bangor Savings Bank entrance in the Main Street Zone. All entrances take you into the Whoopie Pie Zone for those wonderful samples, and once you’ve gone in, you can come in and out as often as you’d like.
Once you’re in and have your tokens you’ll also get a gold coin. It’s very precious! It’s how you vote for your favorite Baker for the People’s Choice Award. Once you find your favorite, give the baker the gold coin and your vote is cast. Listen for the announcements in the afternoon to find out the winner! You can also check out the Varney Agency Kid’s Zone for fun, rides, games, magic and more and visit all the downtown vendors. Confused? Consult the electronic map HERE for all the info you need. We’ll see you on Saturday! Whoopie!
