Maine Day

April 27, 2022

Our theme this year is Survivor/Castaway and we are excited to incorporate that into our activities. For those of you who do not know what Maine Day is, it is our annual day of service.
Check out the schedule below. More details can be found at
Parade: 8:15 a.m.
The parade will be happening rain or shine. Groups are encouraged to dress up/design a float (on a trailer, in the back of a truck, just walking, etc.) to fit in with the theme of Survivor/Castaway. There will be trophy prizes for the best Organization and the best Office. We parade around campus, starting at the Versant Astronomy Center, on a historic route, and drop you off in time for service. 
 Service: 9 a.m.

Service Projects will start immediately after the parade. Check in for your project at the Mall in front of Fogler Library, at 9 a.m. If you have questions, email the Bodwell Center —

Spring Fair: 11 a.m.–2 p.m.

Visit the Memorial Union, where student organizations will be hosting fundraisers and different activities. There will be pieing, head-shaving, snow cones, games, and more.

Maine Day BBQ: 11 a.m.–2 p.m.

The traditional BBQ is back. Due to the rain, the BBQ will be moved inside to Wells, York, and Hilltop. Hop in line and get your tasty treats starting at Noon.

Lawn Games: 1–4 p.m.

Join us on the Mall for lawn games, music, and grab’n go snacks.
