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.




Bibliophiles rejoice! The Big Fall Book Sale Under the Tents is back on the front lawn of the Camden Public Library. Thousands of books, CDs, and DVDs divided into over 25 categories will be on sale beginning Thursday, October 3, and running through Sunday, October 6, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm each day except Sunday, when the sale will close at 4pm.

The Big Book Sales are held twice a year, run entirely by devoted volunteers, and are one of the most important and successful fundraisers for the Camden Public Library. Shoppers will find amazingly affordable prices on books of every imaginable subject matter — including bestsellers, classics, local interest, history, children’s books, cookbooks, rare finds, and so much more. Clear some space on your bookshelves at home, and come discover some new favorite books at this sale! For more information, visit librarycamden.org.

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.
