Camden Harbor Arts & Crafts Show
Camden Harbor Arts & Crafts Show - Camden, Maine
The Camden Harbor Juried Arts & Crafts Show has taken place in Camden twice a year, in July and October, for over thirty years.
Hosted by the Camden-Rockport-Lincolnville Chamber of Commerce, this two-day event features over a hundred artists, crafts professionals and artisans, displaying, discussing, and selling their work in an open ocean air market, where the seaside scenery of Camden Harbor serves as the backdrop. Exhibitor booths line Camden’s Atlantic Avenue, spilling into Camden Harbor Park, and surrounding the Camden Amphitheater.
Against a backdrop of whitecaps and windjammers, artists’ offerings include watercolors, oil, acrylics, pastels, photography, sculpture, jewelry, metals, woodcraft, textiles, pottery, and mixed media. Whether you love the traditional or the avant-garde, you are sure to find something that inspires at this eclectic show. The majority of exhibitors are from Maine, so you can be sure you are getting a flavor for local culture.
What began with just a few artists under a few tents has now become one of the most famous, anticipated, and respected art shows in New England. Admission to the Camden Harbor Juried Arts & Crafts Show is free.
