Dispatch is THE go-to magazine for Maine and Coastal New Hampshire’s buzz-worthy events, reviews in music, and all things film, food, style, nightlife, recreation and more. Basically, it’s everything you care about in one sweet spot.
Dispatch produces 9 issues per year, with a combined December/January, February/March, April/May and single issues for the remaining months containing several themed issues annually.
Going into our third year, we are growing in page count to include more of the things you care about, presented in a sleeker, slicker new look. Some would say we’re growing up, we’d say we just dress a little better and have a bit more authority on the topics we cover.
More than just your source of what’s hip and happening, we also get in on the action, producing monthly and annual events such as:
INT’L PILLOW FIGHT DAY
Grab you pilloe and join us and 30+ cities from Budapest to Berlin for International Pillow Fight Day! A worldwide event of simultaneous pillow fights happening across the globe. Saturday, April 5th, Dispatch brings th fun to Portland’s Monument Square. An all-ages event, bring your pillow, your A-game, and relish in the fact that this may be the only time wearing your pajamas is public is acceptable.
CLASSIC ALBUM SUNDAYS
Once a month, audio geeks, vinyl collectors, and music lovers alike gather together for Classic Album Sunday. Cell phones turn off and chatter is kept to a minimum as a needle drops and vinyl begins to turn. Soon the room is immersed in sound, and eyes close as ears open. Classic Album Sundays brings back the lost art of vinyl/album appreciation, allowing listeners to fully immerse themselves in the music. Each month brings a new classic album, presented with the story behind it and an uninterrupted replay of the LP.
For the second year, Dispatch is proud to be a participant in the annual Pride Parade and Festival. Taking place in mid June, we’re excited to be a part of this vivacious festival. (Details TBA.)
OLD PORT FESTIVAL
For 41 years, the Old Port Festival has been bringing local tunes and vendors to downtown Portland. Not only will Dispatch be part of the fun, but we’re also hosting our own stage again and anticipate another very successful show. It’s our third year working with the Old Port Festival, and we’re excited to unveil some new talent. Come rock out with us!
Get off your couch and come see what all the hype is about. We throw dope parties.
Available from Bangor, ME, to Portsmouth, NH, and everywhere in between, we currently distribute around 20,000 copies per issue.
