Fort Kent to bring movies, music and other merriment to Riverside Park this summer

FORT KENT, Maine – Wednesday evenings this summer will provide plenty of entertainment in Fort Kent as the town brings movies, live bands, food vendors and a farmers market to Riverside Park. 

Last year the town aired family friendly movies free of charge to audiences at the Lion’s Pavilion, to much success.

“Someone approached us to add music this summer and it seems like a great way to mix up entertainment,” Fort Kent parks and rec director Jason Nadeau said. “The summer is short enough; we’d like to encourage families to get out and enjoy it.”

Movies and live music events will alternate each Wednesday at the pavilion. At the same time, Century theater will sell popcorn and local food vendors will also be on hand. 

Farmers will have the opportunity to peddle their fresh fruits and vegetables right near the pavilion behind the Ambulance Service Inc. building.

“We thought adding vendors would be a nice addition to offerings plus the vendors will generate business from it as well,” Nadeau said. “Families can make an evening out of it.” 

“The movies and bands are all sponsored so there won’t be a charge to watch,” Nadeau said.

The activities will take place on Wednesdays from June 22 through Aug. 31, with the exception of Aug. 24.
