The annual August Maine Boat & Home Show features boats in the water, boats on land, marine gear vendors, fine furniture and home wares, arts, architecture, live music, and delicious food. This event is the largest in-the-water boat show north of Newport, and it is also the only show to feature dozens of Maine’s most talented artisans, furniture makers, architects, and builders combined on on waterfront site.
Activities include daily live music, an array of food trucks, a gathering of privately owned small craft, and the light-hearted World Championship Boatyard Dog Trials on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. (only pre-entered dogs may compete, see maineboats.com for entry information. No other pets are allowed on show grounds.). This show is a must for everyone who enjoys life on the Maine coast.
