What is the Maine History Festival?
This part of the conference will have concurrent table displays and poster-session style presentations in the large lobby and gallery space of the Collins Center for the Arts at the University of Maine. Informal one-on-one exchanges at the Festival aim to foster collaboration across boundaries, stimulate new thinking about the statehood process and state commemoration, and encourage revision and further development for presenters to share their understanding of the Maine statehood era and Maine history more broadly in the 2020 bicentennial year.
We welcome presentations from individuals and cultural organizations.
Please note--if you are just coming to present at the History festival and stay for the keynote addresses, there is NO CHARGE. If you plan on attending the 3-day Maine Bicentennial Conference, registration is $60 and you can register on the conference website (above).
