Craft fair lovers, rejoice! There are incredible craft fairs scheduled in Kennebunkport for each of the next three weeks. This Saturday, August 28th, enjoy a Juried Craft Show on the Kennebunkport Green, just steps from famous shipbuilding harbors. Presented by the Society of Southern Maine Craftsmen, it is sure to be a real treat! Just a week later, check out Kennebunkport Maine‘s annual “School Around Us Fall Craft Fair” also held on the Village Green. Each year this show draws over 80 artists and artisans and offers delicious food and live music. Although I take issue with its name (Labor Day may be upon us, but September is Summer Part II in Kennebunkport – perfect for your forgotten vacation for swimming and other fun in the sun!), this fair never disappoints.
On September 11 and 12, don’t miss the 23rd Annual Laudholm Nature Crafts Festival. This widely known festival brings over 100 juried artisans to the Wells Reserve, and is poised to be bigger and better this year with a Maine beer and wine garden sponsored by Duffy’s Tavern. In addition to great food and music, enjoy environmental educational programs throughout the festival. There truly isn’t a more scenic venue for a craft festival, so don’t miss this one!
