The Kennebunkport Festival is Here!

The Kennebunkport Festival officially marks the kick-off of summer in Maine, bringing loads of exciting events to town.  With a focus on the finest things in life, including food, wines and spirits, and stunning artwork, this festival brings loads of exciting events to Kennebunkport. In addition to enjoying incredible artwork all around the community (including the display of historic American architecture), some of my personal favorite events center around food – of course!  This year, instead of a Grand Tasting, the Kennebunkport Festival will… Read More

Kennebunkport Hotels to Host Garden Party

For many, the Kennebunkport Festival serves as the area’s official kick-off to summer, and this year instead of sponsoring an event, several small Kennebunkport hotels and inns have teamed up to host a progressive Garden Party.  Much like a “round robin” or progressive dinner, guests of the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport can enjoy a chauffeured tour of each of the unique gardens and lush lawns, and in a limo, no less!  Yes, a limo!  But while most of the inns are within… Read More

Christmas Prelude is Underway in Kennebunkport Maine

Kennebunkport Maine is alive with the activities of Christmas Prelude, and tonight is no exception!
