The Katahdin Chamber of Commerce regretfully announces today that, due to covid-related restrictions, our Trails End Festival will not take place this coming September. This was not an easy call to make but we feel it is a necessary one for this year. Click the link below to read the full statement.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, Katahdin Chamber of Commerce has been working with colleagues at the Maine State Chamber of Commerce to ensure that Maine businesses, employees, families, and communities are taken care of. For continuous updates of available resources during this rapidly changing situation, please see the link below.
As updates continue in regards to COVID-19, we at the Katahdin Chamber of Commerce are monitoring and taking notice. We understand the public concern will cause people to act cautiously when patronizing local businesses, keeping travel plans, and attending public gatherings. Following the recommendations of the CDC and practicing good, personal hygiene are vital to keeping this spreading health risk at bay.
During this time, our Visitors Information Center will be closed as travel is not recommended to deter the spread of COVID-19. Our Director, Peter Jamieson, will be working from his home office. Communication will remain open and constant via phone, email, and social networking. He will also remain available to meet one on one or in small groups as needed. Our business and community members are encouraged to call at any time with questions, needs, or concerns.
The Katahdin Chamber of Commerce will be reevaluating this plan as new information arises and will adapt as necessary. We wish you the best. Stay safe. We’ll get to the other side of this together.

While it’s not officially Fall yet, the leaves in the Katahdin Region are starting to turn. Lots of beautiful Red Maple leaves are showing up, with the golds, oranges and yellows soon to follow. We have spectacular views here, there’s nothing better than a nice crisp early fall walk through the woods, a kayaking or canoeing trip, or even a nice leisurely drive to view the spectacular foliage. Here is the latest Fall Foliage Report.
