It's one of the most exciting weekends of the entire summer season!  Camden's harbor is always beautiful...but this weekend as the historic windjammer fleet of Maine sails into the harbor, it is positively breathtaking!  Windjammer Festival is a fun filled 3 day event that celebrates Maine's seafairing heritage.
This year 15 windjammers along with 6 historic schooners will enter the harbor during Friday's Parade of Sail... a site to behold!  On shore, enjoy music, food, crafts, talent shows and at night, fireworks over the harbor.  Saturday brings a unique opportunity to tour one of the windjammers, or to actually sail on a historic schooner!  Plus enjoy lobster crate races, music, demonstrations and much more!  Sunday, the festivities resume and watch out when the pirates attack Camden harbor!  The Schedule of Events  for all 3 days is packed with things to do.
Believe it or not...there is still room at the inn!  Only a few rooms left for Saturday and call today!  Bring your camera!
