LOCAL FOOD MOVEMENT IN DOWNTOWN NORWAY

NORWAY, MAINE

Come & Enjoy.
 
You'll hear music as you approach downtown Norway starting at 12pm, interspersed with information about local farmers, local food, local brews, and local action. We believe that to have an impact globally, we have to come together and create locally. Creating a local food system that nourishes body, mind and soul is one place to start and you can find out all about it when you come and enjoy.

JASMINE GUY

Local brew.

Maine brews are all the buzz with over 70 breweries including nano-, micro-, and regional craft-breweries. The Festival will highlight brewers in and around the western foothills of Maine and beyond with a focus on Maine grains, hops, and malts. Join us for a beer!

Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth... these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women's empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all.

BAN KI-MOON

Local arts & entertainment.

“The artist, like the scientist, has a crucial role to perform in our society,” John Sabraw explained to HuffPost. “See things differently, act on this vision, report the failures and successes.”

I know there is strength in the differences between us. 
I know there is comfort, where we overlap.
