Weekend Highlights

Sugarloaf Home Show & Upcountry Artists

Painters, jewelers, wood workers, and a whole lot more will be set up on Saturday and Sunday at the Sugarloaf Home Show and Upcountry Artists' Show. It's a great way to get a jump start on your holiday shopping while supporting local artists. 

Pumpkin Decorating

Please join us on The Beach for Pumpkin Decorating from 8:30-11:00am on Saturday. We'll provide pumpkins and art supplies, and the pumpkins will be displayed for everyone to enjoy before you go. Free and open to all ages!

Music on The Beach

The Marshall Nelson Trio will be rocking the Outdoor Stage on The Beach starting at 11:30am on Saturday. They'll keep the party going all afternoon while we reconnect with fellow Sugarloafers and get excited for the season ahead. Cash bars and BBQ available.

Happy Hour(s)

45 North will be offering happy hour specials from 3:30-5:30 on Saturday, with live music from Don Rogers. 

Maine Outdoor Film Festival

A Sugarloaf Homecoming tradition, the Maine Outdoor Film Festival returns for a special movie viewing on The Beach starting around 6:30pm on Saturday. Bring a blanket and a chair (or pull up a hay bale), we'll supply the popcorn!

Uphill Climb

Just like our founders, Amos Winter and the Bigelow Boys, you'll be trudging up the mountain with your hands, legs and heart. This is no cake walk. You'll run from the base of Sugarloaf to the summit (about 2400 vertical feet). You'll sweat. You'll gasp for breathe. And in the end, you'll have tackled the toughest mountain run in Maine. Race starts at the SuperQuad 11:00 Sunday morning. 

Kids' Climb

The Kids' Climb is a rowdy, friendly, fun obstacle course held on the Landing Sunday at 10am. Proceeds from the Kids' Climb benefit Early Care and Education Programs at Western Maine Center for Children. Registration is open Sunday from 8-10am on the Beach; $10 per kid. Age categories are 3-5, 6-8, and 9-11.
