Each year, Friends of Katahdin Woods and Waters and Maine Beer Company present the annual Anniversary Celebration of Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. Attendees from across the State of Maine and the country gather to enjoy dinner, music, a silent auction, awards, and a rousing toast to commemorate the Monument’s August 24th, 2016 proclamation.

We encourage all our guests at the Anniversary Celebration to visit the Monument and surrounding communities for the entire weekend surrounding the event. With the help of our trips and experiences guide, members and supporters of Friends gather to guide themselves through hikes, bikes, paddles, and other experiences in the area.

The Anniversary Celebration is traditionally the largest annual event put on by Friends and so it is a gathering we plan and prepare for year round. If you or an organization you are part of are interested in supporting the event, please reach out to us. We are eager to fill out our host and sponsor committees for this year’s celebration.

Thanks to our sponsors!
