Generous support for the Fair is provided by lead sponsor The Reny Charitable Foundation, along with Lyman-Morse and
TREEKEEPERS LLC-Johnson’s Arboriculture.

Harbor Arts & Books Fair is an admission-free, family-friendly event, making it a perfect day trip or weekend destination. Area inns, restaurants, and schooner sails welcome our Harbor Arts guests — and the coastal panoramic views from nearby Mount Battie are not to be missed! Exhibitor booths will be in the Amphitheatre, along Atlantic Avenue in Camden, and nestled right along the water in beautiful and scenic Harbor Park.

The library will also host its annual giant Outdoor Book Sale under the tents, on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the Fair weekend. 

Originally begun as the Carol Sebold Arts & Crafts show, the juried show has been hosted annually by the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce for several years and by the C-R-L Chamber of Commerce for years before that. The Library will carry on the tradition of excellent juried arts, with added festive flavor and emphasis on quality and publicity.

The 2019 Summer Harbor Arts & Books Fair is currently at capacity. We are accepting artist applications for the Fall show and will announce the opening of the 2020 Summer Harbor Arts & Books Fair registration here when it becomes available.
