We love this little slice of heaven we call the Midcoast and we’re not bashful about sharing.

Midcoast Magnet is a non-profit organization chock full o’ people dedicated to a vibrant culture and community, entrepreneurship and fostering connections. We value collaboration, innovation, creativity, livability and economic vitality. And you. We value the hell out of you.

So, what does all that actually mean? Really, it’s up to you. 

We offer the times, the places, the funky situations… for you to make the connections that you would like to make. We find the cool stuff, the fun events, the innovative, education, crazy and entertaining – and we share. We collaborate with them, help them prosper and in turn, help our community grow and thrive.

We work to attract as many awesome brains as we can to our lovable area and we make sure they meet others. Connect them… and encourage them to stay. Bring over their toothbrush. Move in. (We get to keep our crappy recliner though.)

Attract. Connect. Retain.

Rhumb Line

Thursday, June 30 Rhumb Line in Camden 5-7pm We know you've been itching to check out Chef Scott Yakovenko’s latest restaurant, Rhumb Line. An "industrial clam shack" with local brews on the working waterfront side of Camden’s harbor As the only restaurant on that side of the wharf, all of the seating has an unfettered view of Camden, providing a fresh perspective for diners so used to seeing the harbor from the opposite side. To read more: www.penbaypilot.com/article/rhumb-line-camden-s-newest-industrial-clam-shack-opens-may-18/70234 About M+M Events Happy Hour...Short and Sweet. If the midcoast has anything...it's a collection of culinary creativity. From farm to table to hip and trendy - we've got it all. In order to kick off a season of socializing, networking and just all around having some lighthearted fun - Midcoast Magnet presents Munchies + Mingling. Once a month, we will host a happy hour event at a Midcoast bar or restaurant that has been opened by some of our ballsiest creative class . These folks have taken a chance, opened one of the hardest businesses you can imagine and hope to succeed - so why not have a few drinks and good noshies - and show them that we care. (Oh, and we want to have a good time too) Happy hour events will run around 5-7pm (depending on the location) and will feature a happy hour drink and appetizer price provided by the business.
