June  | Kennebunkport Festival sponsored by Maine Magazine

The Kennebunkport Festival, an early summer fine food, art and wine festival in New England’s quintessential Southern Maine Coast village by the sea, invites you to celebrate the spectacular creativity and hospitality of Kennebunkport and Southern Maine’s artists and art galleries, chefs and fine restaurants, and historic and romantic bed and breakfast inns and hotels.

This event is a collaboration between Kennebunkport inns, galleries, restaurants, bed and breakfasts and resorts to add exciting activities to Southern Maine’s summer events calendar. Artists, chefs, innkeepers, gallery owners and musicians share their passions for fine food, fine art, fine wine and fine living. Art shows, cooking demonstrations, live music, inn tours, and food and wine tastings are incorporated into a format in which all types of artists interact, work together, and share their creations with festival guests.

The Maine coast is a perfect place to enjoy the first getaway weekend of your summer vacation. Kennebunkport offers all that families and couples on romantic holidays can desire. Fine restaurants, luxury day spas, and full amenity accommodations will all allow you to spend quality time together in the magnificent surroundings of our harbor village. Once you are here, leave your car, walk to town, peruse the eclectic galleries, enjoy a fireside meal, spend the afternoon at our white sand beaches and of course take advantage of this terrific Festival.
