Kennebec Valley Tourism Council has awarded $2,500 in sponsorship support funds to Lake George Regional Park for the 2022 Maine’s Garlic Festival.

This funding will assist in the growth of tourism in Maine’s Kennebec Valley and produce a positive economic impact on the region, according to a news release from the Waterville-based council.

Lake George Regional Park was one of nine sponsorship recipients awarded as part of the 2022 KVTC marketing partnership program. The 2022 KVTC sponsorship support application requests reached nearly $21,500. The organization was unable to fully fund the regional sponsorships request but was able to fund every applicant in some capacity.

According to Lake George Regional Park Director Darryll White, “Maine’s Garlic Festival, which occurs the first weekend of each October, has all the components for a wonderful annual event in Northern New England. Held lakeside and surrounded by autumn foliage and rolling hills, this festival celebrates central Maine’s local art, music, recreation, agriculture and of course, the garlic harvest.”
