Maine Sea Goddess Coronation
2020 Maine Sea Goddess Chloe Elizabeth Blake
2020 Crown Princess Julia Paige Clough
The coronation of the Maine Sea Goddess is a Maine Lobster Festival tradition.
The 1948 festival featured a parade, hot lobster cooked by several local dealers and trucked to Rockland 's Public Landing, a concert by the Rockland City Band on Saturday afternoon, and a coronation ball Saturday evening at the Rockland Community Building.
At this premier coronation, Ruth Roberts of Rockland was crowned as the first "Miss Maine Seafoods." It was in 1948 that the festival extended from one day to two and was held in July. Since then, the Maine Lobster Festival is held the first weekend in August that contains the first Saturday. There are some festival traditions that have been consistent since the beginning: the selection of a Sea Goddess, the serving of Maine lobster, and a grand parade. Today, the Maine Sea Goddess continues to represent Maine throughout her reign.

The Sea Goddess Pageant is about the individual as a whole. Our pageant is based on knowledge of the Midcoast area, elegance, volunteerism, and much more. Every Sea Princess works very hard to compete in this pageant. Women study about the area, go to practices, take local tours and prep to become the Maine Lobster Festival Representative as the Sea Goddess. As a contestant, you get to enjoy hair and makeup services donated by a local salon, delicious meals at local restaurants and stand on stage in a beautiful gown sponsored by a local business or businesses.
