The Machias festival celebrates the battle of the Margaretta, the first naval battle of the American Revolution, and the Battle of the Rim, an equally important battle.
Margaretta Days offer a chance to step back into the year 1770. There will be reenactments, colonial food, entertainment, and music.
This year's event is on Saturday at the University of Maine in Machias and is free to attend. The public is encouraged to dress up on period attire.
