RiceFest is an annual community celebration that takes place the second week of October, named after Wayne and Lorraine Rice, who were tireless volunteers at the CCLC for many years. We created RiceFest in honor of their love of music and their strong belief that everyone should have access to what we offer at the CCLC.
RiceFest coincides with the nationwide American Craft Week, which celebrates and promotes the work of artisans and craftspeople across the country.
Bring your appetite and your dancing shoes, and enjoy a day of music, food, and fun at the CCLC! Featuring demonstrations by local artisans, food by the Lubec Masons and the Rice Family, music all afternoon, children's games and activities, a Whoopie Pie baking contest, a cake walk, and more.
RiceFest is funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
