What is 207 Day?
Portland Downtown and Portland Buy Local coined the term in 2022 with Maine’s State area code — 2-0-7 — in mind. 207 Day is meant to be a day for Mainers, celebrating what makes Maine, Maine and annually falls on February 7th — get it? 2/07?
What is the 207 Day Weekend Scavenger Hunt?
The 207 Day Scavenger Hunt is the wicked fun way we celebrate Portland and the greater 207. It’s a self-guided, virtual scavenger hunt designed to guide Portlanders out of winter hibernation to explore, shop, eat, drink, and think like a Mainer. The 2022 207 Day explorers — kids all the way up to the adult kids — solved riddles, shucked lobsters with the Bronze Lobsterman in Lobsterman Park, drank blueberry flavored beverages, slurped $2.07 oysters, & wrote Love Notes to Portland. More than 400 explorers joined in 2022, but there is no limit. Come one, come all!
When is the 207 Day Weekend Scavenger Hunt?
Since February 7, 2023 is a Tuesday, the 207 Day Weekend Scavenger Hunt will be held the weekend prior on both Saturday, Feb. 4 & Sunday Feb. 5.

What is the Portland Explorer award?
This award is reserved for the participant who completes the most tasks during the hunt. In 2022, this award went to Tammy Locke, who, with the help of her husband and teen son, completed 93 out of the full 96 tasks. Who will win this wicked honor in 2023?!
