Each year on the second Saturday of August, the delicious smell of barbecued chicken fills the air in North Nobleboro, accompanied by great music, and family and friends from the community and beyond. This year, North Nobleboro Day will be held on Saturday, Aug. 13 at the community grounds on Upper East Pond Road in North Nobleboro.
This will be the 50th year that members of the North Nobleboro community have joined together to provide a fun-filled day for their neighbors while raising money for donations to benefit the local area. It is a highly anticipated tradition for many in the community and all are welcome to attend. .Cash or check only accepted for purchases - no credit or debit cards accepted.
Booths will open at 9 a.m. The country kitchen will be filled with homemade pies and doughnuts, delicious breads and cakes, baked beans, fudge and more. Hot dogs, fresh-picked corn on the cob, French fries; and Round Top ice cream will also be available along with various soft drinks.
Trash & Treasures will return to the community hall, and the selection is always plentiful and well priced. It’s a bargain hunter’s dream! As always, the craft table will have many beautiful handmade items and the silent auction table will have items up for bid such as handmade blankets, jewelry and art prints. Members are also excited to present a new 50th annual tee shirt for sale.
North Nobleboro Day would not be the same without Country Western singer Debbie Myers, who will be back for her 17th year. Her band “Redneck Rodeo” will be performing from 10 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. Debbie was the Top Honors Recipient at the 2006 and 2007 Maine Academy of Country Music Awards as Best Female Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year.

Nobleboro’s hard-working chicken pit crew will once again have their famous chicken barbecue ready at 11 a.m. and serve through the afternoon until sold out. Chicken dinners are half a chicken barbecued with a secret recipe, coleslaw, a dinner roll, chips, and a beverage. Bring your appetite for a mouthwatering feast.
