Next Wave Events
2023 Saltwater Shindig
Saltwater Shindig on the Goslings Preserve, Casco Bay
Sunday, July 30, 2023, 12:30 – 4:30 pm
Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s annual lobster bake is hosted by the Next Wave on the Goslings Preserve in Casco Bay. Big fun guaranteed plus the knowledge that purchasing your ticket helps conserve these special places. Brought to you in partnership with our friends at Maine Beer Company and Big Tree Hospitality (you know them as Eventide Oyster Co. and The Honey Paw).
As a special perk for being a Next Wave donor, you get a chance to buy your tickets before they go on-sale to the general public.
Not a donor? Make your gift today and join the group that’s passionate about making a difference for the coast.
