Bangor at Night

We’re so excited to be hosting the 2022 State Convention in the beautiful city of Bangor!

Incorporated in 1791, Bangor is named for an Irish hymn entitled “Bangor.” Today, Bangor remains the commercial and social center of Northern, Central, and Eastern Maine. It has become the region’s largest center of retail and service businesses, and a center for government, education, and employment. Offering a widely diversified economy, Bangor has transcended its traditional roots in forest products and shipbuilding and today maintains its position as one of Maine’s major urban centers (source).

Food & Drink

Bangor, Brewer, and the surrounding boast a wide range of renowned eateries, pubs, breweries, and wineries. If you stick around until Sunday, you can even catch the Bangor Farmers Market across from the Bangor Public Library on Harlow Street – every Sunday at 11am. Check out the links below for additional information.

Beyond eating and drinking, there are plenty of fun activities available in the Bangor area – both indoors and outdoors. Check out the links below for more information.
