The Life Happens Outside Festival is designed to celebrate Maine's outdoors and its passionate outdoor community. Fun for all ages, outdoor interests & skill levels!

Our inaugural event will feature 50+ vendors, interactive workshops, exhibits, gear demos, food, beer, and live music. All participants will have full-access to the fun with opportunities for free giveaways, participation in competitions, outdoor presentations and the ability to purchase outdoor gear directly from the brands.

The Festival kicks off on Friday night with an outdoor showing of the Maine Outdoor Film Festival at Thompson's Point and live music.

We follow up on Saturday with the Festival itself featuring 50+ vendors, food trucks, demos, exhibits, and competitions. In addition to sponsoring the main stage concert on Friday night, L.L.Bean will be present with their Outdoor Discovery School.
