The Town of Lincoln has a great Events and Tourism Committee that works hard to put together great family friendly events throughout the year. Here is a list of the events we hold in our town as well as a brief description.
Breakfast with Santa
The Town of Lincoln’s 19th Annual Breakfast with Santa will be December 1st from 8:30-10:30 am. Our traditional breakfast of pancakes, sausage, milk, orange juice and coffee will be served.
There will be face painting, crafts, dancing, Toys for Tots and new this year, ELVIS. Yes, Elvis will there to entertain both young and old.
The highlight of the breakfast will be a visit from Santa Claus himself.

The parade starts at 4 pm, and the Tree Lighting Ceremony begins at 5 pm at Veterans Square. There will be entertainment at the tree lighting ceremony, including the MJHS Chorus, lead by Nancy Kinkade. If your organization or business would like to participate in the Festival of Lights Parade, please contact Heather Spearin at LLRCC at 207-794-8065 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers meet up at the Loon and then go around town picking up all the trash and litter that has appeared over the winter. Last year in 3 hours we picked up over 40 bags of trash! Let’s keep Lincoln beautiful!
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine , Lincoln PD, and area businesses put on this fun event for children ages 10 and under. It’s a safety course, there’s a big BBQ put on by the Knights of Columbus and lots of giveaways, including a chance to win a new bicycle.
MSG Gary Gordon Day
In 2018, the Town of Lincoln paid our respects to our Hometown Hero, MSG Gary Gordon. We held a day of patriotic events to celebrate his memory. MSG Gary Gordon was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously in 1993 for his heroics in Operation Gothic Serpent in the Battle of Mogadishu, Somalia. We were honored to have Senator Susan Collins as a keynote speaker. We also had the 195th Maine Army National Guard Band perform.
Town Wide Yard Sale
We held our first ever Town Wide Yard Sale in 2018, and the proceeds from the signup were donated to the MSG Gary Gordon MOH Memorial Fund. It was a really big success and we are already looking forward to next year.
The Loon Festival is Lincoln’s biggest annual event. The Loon Festival features The River Drivers Supper, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, The Redneck Regatta, The Loon Festival Parade, lots of great food, great musical performances and a giant fireworks display. This event gets bigger and better every year!
Penobscot Pirate Paddle
2018 was the maiden voyage of the Penobscot Pirate Paddle. Over 16 vessels participated. Dressed in pirate garb, these buccaneers went on a treasure hunt on the Penobscot. It was a great time!
Harvest Moon Festival
Lincoln’s Harvest Moon Festival features a 5k, a kids race, vendors, musical performances at Veterans Square, Pontoon boat rides around scenic Mattanawcook Pond, and the Harvest Moon Festival Dinner.
Haunted Trail Walk
This spooky trail is a favorite and people come from all over to be scared in our ghoulish walking trail. This year is going to be scarier than ever so you’ve been warned! The dates for this year’s Haunted Trail Walk is October 20th and October 27th from 6:30- 8:30 pm. The Haunted Walk starts at the Ella P Burr entrance to the Walking Trail.
