Experience.

Unfortunately, we can't bring 7,000 people to Central Maine in October. But we don't want 2020 to be known as "The Year Without Whoopie" so stay tuned for details on WHOOPtoberfest!

 

WHOOPtoberfest will be a chance for fans of the Maine Whoopie Pie to explore and experience whoopie pie bakers and vendors around the state of Maine and beyond. There will be offers, promotions, prizes, and activities to make the whoopie last all October long!

A Maine Classic

While not a pie at all, but rather a creamy filling layered between two soft cookies, this classic confection has been a favorite of Mainers for over a century. For much of that time, the whoopie pie was a locals-only delicacy.

It’s impossible to keep something this good a secret, however. In recent years, the whoopie pie has gained popularity across the country and in shops from London to Hong Kong. Since 2009, the Maine Whoopie Pie Festival has been gathering the best bakers from around New England to offer samples and compete for prizes and bragging rights. And in 2011, the whoopie pie became Maine’s Official State Treat!

Experience

All That Piscataquis
Has to Offer

The Maine Whoopie Pie Festival is the largest annual event in Piscataquis County. We’re thrilled to introduce so many people to the community we love, but there’s no way to do it all in one day!

Whether you are looking for beach time, boating, and excellent fishing at Sebec Lake; quiet hikes on the Appalachian Trail; exploring our welcoming, walkable communities; live theater and movies at the Center Theatre; or the best coffee anywhere at Center Coffee House, we know once you visit Piscataquis County you’ll want to return.

When people think about where they want to spend their work week, raise their children, experience the beauty of nature, or eventually retire, quality of life is a major factor. We have that, right here in the friendly communities, cultural heritage, wooded pathways, and pristine waters of Piscataquis County.

For more information on Piscataquis, visit the Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce, Destination Moosehead Lake, and the Maine Highlands.

The Festival is produced by the Center Theatre and organized by its board members and community members from other organizations.  It is truly a community effort that makes this festival possible. We also are grateful for the support and work of the Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce, without their help the festival wouldn’t be possible.

We're grateful for the support of our sweet lead sponsor, Shaw's!
