5/22/2020: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic and Maine CDC guidelines limiting gatherings of more than 50 people through the summer, we regretfully need to cancel the Strawberry Festival scheduled for June 27. We are exploring the possibility of opening with tours in July, however, no formal plan exists at this time. We are continually assessing state requirements and hope to hear soon from state officials on reopening guidelines for museums.
