CanAm Crown Sled Dog Races
Fort Kent, Maine

March 4, 2017 - March 5, 2017

We invite you to a rare place where you can witness the most challenging sled dog race in the eastern United States. We have organized high quality racing events designed for the enjoyment of mushers, spectators, and dog teams. All Can-Am Crown races now have highly accessible starts on Fort Kent's Main Street and comfortably viewed finishes at Lonesome Pine Ski Lodge in Fort Kent.

The Can-Am Crown 250 also has designated spectator points in the towns of Portage Lake and Allagash. For logistic and safety reasons, checkpoints west of Portage Lake and south of Allagash are closed to the public. Racing events in Fort Kent are planned to have maximum accessibility and visibility. How many other places do you know of that would close Main Street on a Saturday for maximum visibility? There are no fees to view the races. Bring your camera!

Also, come and celebrate our 25th Anniversary with us.
