For adults, the Hollywood Casino offers live music, poker tournaments, and an epic buffet. The Penobscot Theater, located in the heart of the city, is a great place to catch a live musical, comedy or drama. Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion is an excellent summer concert venue.

The Bangor State Fair is among the oldest in the country and draws about 50,000 over the course of 10 days in late July.

The American Folk Festival on the waterfront “brings the world to Bangor” for 3 days in late August. This is a can’t-miss event for music and performance art folks.

Food & Drink

Downtown Bangor has a wide range of dining options. Evenrood’s has a modern industrial look and feel, and a delicious upscale menu. Just around the corner, you’ll find Blaze, a chic restaurant/pub, with menu options like woodfired pizza and fish tacos.
