Maine seaweeds are beginning to play a major role in the growth and sustainability of our local economy and global health. The Maine Seaweed Festival aims to highlight the diverse uses and beneﬁts of seaweed, while celebrating all of the dedicated harvesters, farmers, ﬁshermen and processors who continue to invest their efforts in creating a viable and vibrant seaweed industry here in Maine.
Seaweed Fest features local artists, entertainment, and vendors who are using Maine seaweeds in their craft. The day includes educational speakers, many activities for children of all ages, live music and food trucks.
