Whoopie pie festival goes virtual throughout October

The Maine Whoopie Pie Festival — which attracts thousands of visitors to Piscataquis County every year — was yet another victim of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, but the state’s official treat hasn’t been forgotten by the event’s organizers.

Originally scheduled for June 27 and then postponed until Oct. 3, the annual event based in Dover-Foxcroft is being replaced by a month-long virtual celebration dubbed “WHOOPtoberfest” just getting underway.

“Our fallback date was Oct. 3rd, but obviously it became clear that we couldn’t bring 7,000 people from all around New England to Dover-Foxcroft this year,” organizer Patrick Myers said. The festival has grown since its origin in 2009 to become the largest single-day event in Piscataquis County each year.

WHOOPtoberfest will include a variety of activities designed to highlight the whoopie pie, as well as its bakers, vendors and consumers. One highlight is a page on the event’s website —

Ars Electronica Festival Expanded Online To Connect Art, Science And Technology

Since 1979, the Ars Electronica Festival in Austria brings together artists, scientists, engineers and a curious public. This year seemed no different. The exhibits, performances, workshops, talks, and discussions attracted thousands of visitors and hundreds of artists to the main festival sites in the city of Linz. Still, this year was different. Due to the ongoing pandemic and travel restrictions, many people weren’t able to visit Linz in person. But fittingly for an arts and technology festival, Ars Electronica found a creative digital solution.

Certain parts of the festival were available via online video channels and attendees could connect in digital hubs. The channels not only broadcast some of the events in Linz, but also gave a platform to various science art sites around the world.
