Harbor Arts and Books Fair

Saturday, September 30, 2023 @ 9:00 am Sunday, October 1, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

On Saturday, September 30, and Sunday, October 1, the Camden Public Library will host the Fall Harbor Arts and Books Fair in the beautiful Camden Amphitheatre and along Atlantic Avenue. The fair will feature over 50 talented artists and craftspeople showcasing and selling wares from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. This popular community event is free and open to the public.

Harbor Arts and Books has possibly the most beautiful location for an art fair on the East Coast. The fairs take 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 display their work in standard 10×10 tents. This juried show is a dynamic focal point of creative expression. It is a perfect place for artists to show their wares, connect with other creative folks, and pair art enthusiasts with beautiful creations.

The Fair runs concurrently with the library’s Huge Book Sale Under the Tent, which kicks off a day earlier on Friday, September 29, and runs through Sunday, October 1. The tent will be located in the “Meadow” parking lot, just past the Camden Amphitheatre on Atlantic Ave. The book sale hours will be 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Both of these events offer hours of family-friendly fun in charming and walkable downtown Camden. Delicious eateries, historic schooners, fabulous specialty shops, and even hiking trails are all within easy reach of the fair, making it a great day trip or weekend adventure.

Generous support for the Fair is provided by lead sponsor The Reny Charitable Foundation.
