Mark your calendars… for the Kennebunkport Festival 2013!

1 Comment

For many years, the Maine summer event at the forefront of my mind has been the Yarmouth Clam Festival (which will be July 19th – 21st this year). I loved going as a child, as a teen, and a young adult- but more on that to come.  Recently, Twitter activity (follow me @mainerootsgirl) about the Kennebunkport Festival has piqued my interest – so I did some digging.

The Kennebunkport Festival 2013 is June 4th-8th and is produced by the staff of Maine magazine and Maine Home+Design magazine.  Their intent, per the ‘About’ page, is to showcase the finest of Maine – fine art, fine dining, and fine wine.  Set in charming Kennebunkport, Maine, the festival includes dinners at private residences, special events hosted by restaurants and other venues, art viewings, and live music.  For a full listing of events or to purchase tickets, click here.

Where the Yarmouth Clam Festival has a casual, family-friendly vibe, the Kennebunkport Festival strikes me as an opportunity for adults to explore and enjoy the upscale side of Maine – I envision sundresses and cocktails, oceanside.   And oh, how I wish I could be there!
