I warmly invite you to come to Lisbon and learn why Maine's annual Moxie Festival truly has Moxie � not just the soft drink, but real "Moxie." Moxie is a great description for what has become a Maine summer tradition � not only for Mainers but also for many folks "from away." Attendance records continue to be broken: 40,000 in 2010 followed by an estimated 50,000 in 2011. Since this is our special 30th anniversary, I recommend you come early and stay late! The Moxie Festival Committee is very happy to be able to entice you for this anniversary year with several exciting new events: � The return of the Moxie Car Show on Sunday behind Lisbon High School; � New games for young kids, and adult games of chance throughout the three days; � We are especially excited to announce that for the first time the successful "Summer Concertin-the-Park" music series will overlap with the Moxie Festival on Saturday evening of the Festival through the "Moxie Concert-in-the-Park." The concert will include many excellent performers, and will feature two outstanding acts: � "The Mallet Brothers" (winners of the 2011 & 2012 Portland Phoenix Music Awards for "Best Local Act," "Best Live Act," and "Best Local Album"), and: � The "Brian Maes Band." Brian has toured and recorded with Peter Wolf of the J. Geils Band, and also with Barry Goudreau of the band Boston. � A book signing at Kennebec Fruit Co. "Moxie Store" Saturday by Jim Baumer, local author of "MOXIE: Maine in a Bottle," � Sunday the extremely popular Androscoggin River Race will again take place along with the return of the "Moxie Car Show" at the Lisbon High School.
