Please join us at this years 2017 Celebration!!!


Plans are underway for the 3rd Annual DownEast Lobstah Drop New Year’s Eve Celebration Event to be held in Downtown Machias on December 31, 2017.

With summer come and gone, the months are quickly flying,we are charging full-speed into 2018!

This year we are asking you to try something new, instead of sitting home and watching a ball drop on TV, you can experience a night full of performances, activities, learning and watch our own DownEast Lobstah Drop!

The DownEast Lobstah Drop’s goal is to “create a spirit of community by providing shared cultural experiences, accessible and free to all.”

“New Year’s Eve” is a time of renewal and new beginnings. It is an opportunity for the community to look ahead collectively with hope, optimism, and to appreciate its common bonds.

Be part of this fun event while supporting a great cause, our community and our local businesses! This event brings more traffic, and attention to our town and our local business community. With last year’s huge success of our New Year’s event, we will be able to grow The DownEast Lobstah Drop Event so it becomes a destination spot for New Year’s Eve, for Machias, and its surrounding communities.

Downtown Machias will be fun filled with events for all ages! Activities already in place for this year’s celebration include a hat parade, a magician, juggler, live music, demonstrations, local business activities, a bon-fire, the DownEast Lobstah Drop at midnight!
