Do you have fiddlehead fever? If so, this is a trip you might want to take this weekend!

The Presque Isle Downtown Revitalization, and Central Aroostook Chamber of Commerce, are kicking off summertime activities for 2022, with the 2nd Annual "County's Fiddlehead Festival"

This three-day event features a fiddlehead picking contest, a craft fair, bird watching, an outdoor run/kayak/bike race, cooking competition, live music , vendors, fireworks and more!

It seems like I see people constantly posting about their craving for fiddleheads. If a sweet asparagus tasting, grassy, snappy like a green bean, with a touch of broccoli stem is your cup of tea, then you are in luck. There will be a whole weekend of fun, based around this delightful delicacy.

Here is the exciting schedule of events for this upcoming weekend:
