The Convention will take place on the 2nd floor of the Augusta Civic Center, which also houses the three-day, free to attend, Maine Agricultural Trades Show. Information and updates about the Maine Agricultural Trades Show is available online at: www.maine.gov/dacf/
How to get to the Civic Center:
Take exit 112 off Interstate 95 onto ME-11 S/Civic Center Drive. There is a large marquis sign at the first intersection indicating the Civic Center Driveway.
For attendees flying in, Augusta is located between the Bangor International Airport and the Portland Jetport. Both have car rental facilities on site.
There are a number of hotels in the area. We recommend that visitors plan to come on Tuesday or Wednesday in order to take in the Agricultural Trades Show Wednesday, then get an early start for a full day of farmers’ market convening on Thursday the 12th. For reservations at the hotels nearest the venue, it is wise to plan ahead, as they will fill up fast.
