Each year during the first week of June, an exciting food, wine, and art festival comes to town and this year is no exception, as we welcome the Kennebunkport Festival 2013! So for six full days (or as few or many as you would like!) you can indulge in the finest dining prepared by chefs from the most renowned restaurants in the state. But it
gets even better, because while you can choose from events at local fine dining restaurants or at incredible private residences throughout Kennebunkport that are open exclusively for these events. More interested in the adult beverages? There will be cocktail parties at different restaurants each night, a casual event featuring local beers, as well as the Grand Tasting, featuring products from Cellardoor Winery and Nappi Distributors.
There is one thing, though, that sets this event apart from other food and wine festivals, and that is the incorporation of the arts into this celebration that embodies some of the best parts about Kennebunkport. So while this quaint village offers a plethora of stunning galleries for your year round viewing pleasure, during this week, some of the most talented artists gather their works for viewing all together with phenomenal edible works of art at your fingertips to enhance your viewing pleasure. Worried about splurging on one of the Art of Dining experience during your first Kennebunkport Festival experience? Don’t worry! Because there is plenty to enjoy without committing to an elegant dinner. Consider the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport‘s Second Annual Garden Parties, any of the luxe cocktail hours, or even Brews and Tunes, a beer tasting with live music from local artists. But if you still aren’t ready to commit to tickets, you can still enjoy the wonderful weather that graces Kennebunkport during early June, the amazing restaurants, stunning galleries, and other events held throughout town that aren’t part of the official Kennebunkport Festival 2013. We’re really looking forward to this celebration and hope you are too!
