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.

View the vendors for the Summer 2024 show here.

Information for the SUMMER show can be found here. SHOW IS NOW FULL.

Information for the FALL show can be found here.

Camden on Canvas 2024

The Camden Public Library presents “Camden on Canvas,” a plein-air fundraiser being held July 19 through July 21.

This unique event will unite twenty-one notable landscape artists from around New England for a weekend of painting outdoors. The occasion will culminate with a “wet-paint” exhibit, followed by a ticketed reception and lively auction in the historic Camden Amphitheatre.

This is an exciting opportunity for the public to observe painters as they capture the beauty of our community—where the mountains meet the sea. Collectors can bid on newly created works of art and know that their purchases are helping to secure the library’s future.

Learn more and purchase tickets for the reception & auction HERE.
