On Saturday, June 15th from 10AM to 4PM, the Outdoor Heritage Museum in Oquossoc will once again host the popular Lupine Festival in celebration of the striking lupine flower that carpets the Rangeley Region in June. This festival event will feature over 35 vendors of arts, crafts, and antiques on the grounds of the Museum at 8 Rumford Road in Oquossoc. Attendees can browse and shop for unique gifts and Maine-made wares during the event. They can also visit the Outdoor Heritage Museum’s new 2024 exhibits, which will be open during the festival. The Museum Gift Shop will have native lupine seeds and lupine t-shirts available for sale. All proceeds from museum admissions, gift shop sales, and vendor fees benefit the Rangeley Lakes Region Historical Society, which works to preserve and share the region’s rich history.
Also, on site at the Lupine Festival all day will be the popular Vintage Dogs food truck, featuring specialty hot dogs from different regions of the US.
