NOTICE: If you are travelling to Oronofest via Highway 35/115 northbound, you will not be able to use the Main Street/Concession 5 off ramp due to construction. However don’t worry we are here to provide you with the detour route. Please follow ALL D-4 detour signs and Oronofest signs along the route shown here. The detour will take you to the Taunton Road exit. Once at Taunton Road go left/west and continue west until you reach Main Street. You will turn left or south and take Main Street until you reach Oronofest in the downtown core of Orono. Parking is available off of Centreview Street on the north end of the Orono Fairgrounds. We will have event members available to assist once downtown. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. We took the detour today and it is a difference of 6 km or 6-8 minutes to complete.
