The MAINE NEWS CALENDAR of Events is updated and published online daily. The “calendar week” begins on Saturday and submissions for the digital calendar should be emailed a week or more in advance. Submissions for print should be at least two weeks before the event. Our deadline chart can be found at www.turnerpublishing.net/pdf/Deadlines.pdf. To add an event to either calendar, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Weeks in listing are Saturday through the following Friday.
Listings for events that are four consecutive days or more are below single and two-day events; regular monthly and weekly meetings and events, listed by town, are at the end.
COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: Those attending live events should prepare to wear a face covering and practice social distancing, as required by the state, until such measures are lifted. For space purposes, that notation has been removed from most calendar listings, but it’s required of live gatherings.
