The Fundy-Acadia Region explodes with festivals and events during the spring summer and fall, celebrating birds to blueberries, painting to boating and everything in between!
From July 2 through July 4 the streets of Eastport are packed with locals and tourists celebrating the 4th with activities for all ages. Contests, races, parades, food and craft stalls, and boat trips all make the weekend an enjoyable one for the whole family.
"Summerkeys is a WONDERFUL way to spend a summer vacation. I've been coming for five years now, and taken piano and violin. There is music at all levels, from beginner to advanced; friendly, highly skilled musicians who understand adult learners as teachers; nonjudgemental, enthusiastic audiences; plenty of opportunities to perform (or not, if you're shy), all in an absolutely beautiful town. Sit and watch the seals play as you rest on the bench down the hill from your practice room, listen to world-class faculty concerts, eat lobster and good food in the various restaurants, enjoy the cool summer weather and the glorious sunrises & sunsets, and, if you want an active vacation, you can build your aerobic capacity by walking all over town--everything is a short walk away. Highly recommended for the music lover, regardless of skill level!" - Margaret Knox Morris

Come celebrate the powerful little fruit that put our corner of Downeast Maine on the map. Centre Street Congregational Church, UCC, rolls out the blue carpet each August with crafts, food, entertainment, contests, and all things blueberry. There’s no admission charge.
We are on the Downeast part of Maine’s beautiful, rugged coast, two hours from Bangor, about an hour and a half from Bar Harbor, and a little more than an hour from St. Stephen, New Brunswick.
From whale-watching to lighthouses, from hiking and kayaking to eagles and lobster rolls, our little corner of Maine has a lot to offer!
Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, sliding, tote sled rides, horse drawn sleigh, and nature walks are just a few of the activities that you can participate in. Ski and snowshoe trailer for free loans. 4th Saturday in January.
