Carnaval ME, a winter festival loosely modeled after the popular Brazilian event, is scheduled to run February 17th through February 26th of 2022.  The event will feature food, craft beers, ice sculpting, skiing and snowboarding demonstrations, train rides and lots of live music.  Other bands and acts scheduled to perform include Maine's The Ghost of Paul Revere, Motor Booty Affair, Hello Newman, and the Jason Spooner Band.
