Cash bar: On Saturday evening, your first beer from Maine Beer Company is complimentary, but after that, you will need to pay for beer or wine with cash. The closest ATM is 20 minutes away at Katahdin Trust in Patten. We highly suggest taking out cash before you get to the event.

Getting to Shin Pond Village: Be advised that cell phone reception can be spotty in the communities surrounding the monument, so we suggest you print directions to Shin Pond Village (click link for directions), or save directions to your phone. If you’d like written directions, please email info@friendsofkww.org prior to the event.

Parking: If you are driving to the event on Saturday evening, it’s important to park in the spots designated for the Anniversary Celebration.

Admittance: You don’t need a physical ticket to get into this weekend’s events. We are maintaining a guest list so when you arrive, we will admit you and any additional ticket holders under your name into the event. Please reach out to info@friendsofkww.org if you have any questions about getting in. This is a sold-out event, so unless someone has a ticket reserved, we will not be able to admit them.
