Rockland Lobster Festival

Bed and Breakfast Maine namely the Atlantic Birches Inn an Old Orchard Beach Inn would like to show you the Better Way To Stay and inform you of one of our favorite events of the year the Rockland Lobster Festival 

Lobster Parade


The Festival a 65-year-old tradition, which comes alive like clockwork the first week of August every year, provides a sense of seasonal timekeeping; for others, a centerpiece for homecoming gatherings; and for others, a reconnection with the pleasure of basic hometown charm and plenty of Lobsters. 

Some of the key events are as follows

The “Great International Lobster Crate Race” is open to all people
