In 2012, the Maine Outdoor Coalition began the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend, a weekend packed with outdoor activities across the state.
Since that first GMOW, thousands of Mainers have participated in hundreds of sponsored events connecting with family, friends, and the natural world. GMOW happened twice a year, in the winter and fall. Over time, the core weekends expanded to long weekends and whole weeks.
The Fall 2019 GMOW encompasses two weekends and runs September 13-22, 2019.
