*** Arts in the Park - June 29 & 30 ***

Join us for the 28th annual Arts in the Park on the waterfront in Belfast

featuring over 120 Maine artists! Rain or shine! Saturday & Sunday, 10am - 4pm!

This is one of the most respected arts and fine crafts festivals in midcoast Maine. The variety of art offerings are outstanding, along with live music, and the smells of local eats all adding to the creative atmosphere. The venue is undeniably beautiful, in a large open park on the ocean’s edge, with a harborwalk, sailboats nearby and a summer breeze to enjoy. The Gazebo at Steamboat Landing hosts live music throughout the weekend.

This event is brought to you by Belfast Area Chamber of Commerce and the Belfast Parks & Recreation Department.

Many thanks to our returning Platinum Event Sponsors KSW Federal Credit Union and RE/MAX Jaret & Cohn Real Estate. Thanks to our Special Event Sponsor Camden National Bank.

Live Music from Smoke & Mojo, Jonesville, Anni & The Rainmakers, Belfast Bay Fiddlers, New Shades of Blue, and Adam Ouellette!

Food and treats provided by Belfast Lions Club, Big Daddy's Hot Box, Ca C'est Bon, Ruckus Donuts, and Stone Fox Farm Creamery!
