The Maine Mall’s Octoberfest and New Englands Best will be a highly-publicized event, with radio plugs in the week leading up to the festival and announcements placed in dozens of media outlets. With food trucks, a beer festival, live entertainment, a kids play area, and a showcase of New England’s best local designer and artistic talent, Octoberfest promises to be an exciting and well-attended destination at the biggest mall in the state of Maine.
