Jailhouse Rock in Wiscasset offers dancing, food, lawn games, tours of old jail cells

    WISCASSET — The Old Jail, in Wiscasset, will be the site of a Jailhouse Rock event for all ages, Saturday, Aug. 10, at 5 p.m., with dancing, food, lawn games, and tours of the jail cells.

    The stewardship committee of Lincoln County Historical Association’s Old Jail invites young and old for an evening of music by the jazz-rock-blues band Leopard Girls, led by musician/composer Gary Lawless.

    Bring your own picnic or purchase food at the jail. Event organizers have partnered with Wiscasset Partners in Education to sell picnic fare at reasonable prices to benefit school programs. In addition, kids and kids-at-heart will participate in games and races, and those interested in glimpsing the austere cells in the 213 year-old granite jailhouse will be treated to brief tours.

    Tickets for adults are $5; kids are free. Jailhouse Rock will be held rain or shine. Visit to purchase tickets online.

    The Lincoln County Old Jail is located at 133 Federal Street in Wiscasset.
