Now that the Kennebunkport Festival is underway, a group of Kennebunkport bed and breakfasts are busy preparing for this weekend’s Garden Party. Tomorrow, guests of any of the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport can enjoy complimentary limo service from inn to inn. They’ll get an opportunity to explore each of the very unique properties while socializing with other visitors to the area. Plus, at each of these Kennebunkport bed and breakfasts, they will find refreshing beverages (both adult and otherwise, depending on the location and predetermined menu) and a selection of delectable treats! At the Maine Stay Inn, visitors will be treated to a true Maine classic – the whoopie pie. And while we’re serving the traditional devil’s food cake with fluffy marshmallowy filling, we will also be serving “reverse” whoopies with tender golden cake and an ultra-rich chocolate buttercream, and a third variety that will just have to be a surprise! For the past few weeks, we’ve had many testing sessions and competitions judged by our guests to help select their favorites, and it’s taken all of my willpower to not joke about “making whoopie” – but tonight and tomorrow morning will be filled with making whoopie…pies, that is!
Last year’s Garden Party was a phenomenal success, and serenaded by the musical stylings from the Kennebunkport Festival‘s Brews and Tunes held on the town green just a block away, do all of the participating Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfasts are thrilled to bring it back this year! Plus, it’s a great opportunity to enjoy some of the offerings of the Kennebunkport Festival without committing to any of the high ticket events. But as an aside, food and wine lovers who frequent festivals like this one know that the schedule of events provides an intimate setting for incredible selections of culinary creations and locally crafted spirits. Stay tuned for an update on the Kennebunkport Festival and the Garden Party hosted by the Kennebunkport bed and breakfasts!
