Celebrate all things Moose at the 28th annual North Country Moose Festival! Held annually the weekend before Labor Day.  This year’s festivities include a moose calling contest, moose chili, live music, artisan & craft vendors, as well as family favorites like horse & wagon rides, a dog show, and maple syrup tasting contest – not to mention the classic car show! 


This event is the North Country Chamber of Commerce’s premier fundraising event, drawing thousands each year. It provides a venue for residents, second homeowners and tourists alike to enjoy old-time family fun as well as showcase the many diverse talents and services that are located right here in the North Country.
