Stuff the Bus

Working together to support the vulnerable within our region, this event engages businesses to collect needed items and toys among their staff or as a public bus stop. This event grows each year, and is great for businesses looking to take action to feel good, and be recognized for their leadership.

Taste the Harvest

An annual autumn celebration of local food and agriculture, Taste the Harvest brings our community together to sample the best autumn harvest Maine can serve up and highlights the incredible food products, producers, and culinary talent of our region.

River Race

Working in partnership with Androscoggin Land Trust (ALT), this annual event is open to all to launch canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, (and more!) into the Androscoggin River and complete one of three courses of varying length and challenge! Pick your paddle: Choose from a 7-mile course with rapids, a 3-mile rapid-free course with an up-river challenge, or a short, fun 1.5 miles. This event is held in conjunction with the Great Falls Brewfest, which takes place that afternoon, a stone’s throw across the river from our starting line, (and thanks to Baxter Brewing, all pre-registered racers 21+ receive a discount on admission to the Brewfest). All paddlers are entered to win raffle prizes from local businesses, which are awarded after the race. This event is a unique opportunity to take in the natural beauty of the Androscoggin River with a group of fellow paddlers.

Downtown Trick or Treat

An event for the whole family, the Downtown Trick or Treat is a safe and fun trick-or-treating experience that connects Lewiston Auburn businesses with the community. A great way to build name recognition for your company and help enhance quality of life in LA. Businesses do not need to be located in the downtowns to participate.
