The Whatever Family Festival, Kennebec Valley, Augusta #Whatevergoes

Kennebec River Day - Mill Park, Saturday, June 24, 2017 

Nearly four decades ago, residents of the Kennebec Valley first came together to celebrate the river that unifies our region. What started with a carefree race down the Mighty Kennebec River has transformed into the top-notch two week family festival we celebrate today! 

The Whatever Family Festival will kick off with the Blistered Fingers Bluegrass Festival in Litchfield and ends with fireworks on July 4th. This two week-long festival has events throughout the Kennebec Valley, from Gardiner to Winthrop and everywhere in between. The Whatever Family Festival is celebrating its 40th Anniversary with new excitement!
