Everything is coming up Moxie at the Maine Moxie Festival in Lisbon Falls, July 8th-10th. Moxie has many fans in Maine and New England, and this is the only festival that celebrates the oldest continually produced soft drink in the United States. The Moxie Festival is three days of fun with events for all ages. Even if you don't like the taste of Moxie, you will like this fun festival celebrating the first bottled carbonated beverage made in the USA.
