Harbor Arts & Books 2024

The Camden Public Library is pleased to announce another year of our Annual Fall Harbor Arts and Books Fairs on July 6 & 7 and October 5 & 6, 2024. The fairs takes place in Camden’s historic Harbor Park and Amphitheatre, and on the street that passes through the park, at the head of Camden Harbor. Exhibitors will display their work in standard 10×10 tents. We welcome you to the salty air and intimate surroundings of our Harbor Park and Amphitheatre during the times of year when the town of Camden is bustling with tourists — all here to enjoy the ocean views and many cultural and artistic events in the area.

Vendor applications will be available through the Zapp application portal beginning on January 1, 2024.

Information for the SUMMER show can be found here.

Information for the FALL show can be found here.
