Each June a festival of fine food, fine wine, and fine art comes to Kennebunkport Maine, and the Kennebunkport Festival (June 5-10, 2017) is quickly approaching! So mark your calendars, because June 5-10 is packed with events to suit every palate – literally! Indulge in the finest dining prepared by hand-picked chefs from the best restaurants in Maine or just sip some local beers while listening to a selection of live music from Maine bands.
First-time visitors to the Kennebunkport Festival might enjoy the Maine Craft Music Festival on the Kennebunkport Town Green. It used to be called “Brews and Tunes,” a fave for visitors and locals alike. This year, tuck into some of the culinary creations from food trucks and sip some local beers while listening to fantastic music. Or kick off the start of the weekend (but not the start of the festival!) with The Spirit of Maine, a nighttime bash with DJs, great food, and local adult beverages – best of all, you can walk back to the Maine Stay Inn from the venue, so bottoms up!
For the full Kennebunkport Festival, select a privately created dinner at one of the area’s incredible private residences throughout Kennebunkport Maine that are opened exclusively for these events. But the cherries on top is truly the Grand Cru “Wood Fired” dinner and the Grand Tasting Events.
And while The Kennebunkport Festival is a truly phenomenal culinary festival, what sets this event apart from other festivals is the incorporation of the arts, with live music, art shows, and gallery open houses, as well as dining experiences influenced by local artists and their works. Whether you take part in the festival’s events, stunning galleries dot the streets of Kennebunkport all year round! But no matter whether you participate in the festival events or not, you can still enjoy the wonderful weather that graces Kennebunkport Maine during June, the amazing restaurants, stunning galleries, and other events held throughout town that aren’t part of the official festival. We’re really looking forward to the 2017 Kennebunkport Festival and hope you are too!
