Discover the Kennebunkport Festival

This Kennebunkport tradition is run by a grassroots community effort maintaining what the festival is all about: community, charity, and good times. Last year, they raised over $81,000 for local charities during the “New Kennebunkport Festival,” and they’re already planning to make 2019 another incredible success. Here are some of the best reasons to plan your trip and check it out:

1. Enjoy a Variety of Community-Based Events

Each year, local businesses open their doors and invite visitors to participate in several Kennebunkport Festival activities. Some of the previous events have included cocktail parties, gourmet dinners, and live music performances. And, you can expect to enjoy much of the same during the Kennebunkport Festival 2019. The celebration continues for a full week, so you’ll have no trouble finding fun events and creating lasting memories.

2. Help Raise Money for Local Charities

Whether you’re enjoying a taste of Maine’s famous cuisine or dancing the night away under the stars, you’ll be supporting some fantastic causes. And, the Kennebunkport Festival Committee makes sure you know exactly where the funds are going. Last year, they teamed up with local businesses to support Habitat for Humanity, the Animal Welfare Society, Full Plates Full Potential, and more.
