In the current climate of Covid-19 concerns, the library feels that the lingering effects of this unprecedented health scare would negatively impact the vendors and the customers of this event. So, in a time of necessary flexibility, we will do what we have to do for the safety and success of all who are involved. We are sadly cancelling the Summer Harbor Arts & Books Fair, and we will keep the public updated in regards to the Fall Harbor Arts & Books Fair.

Hosted by the Camden Public Library, the 2020 Fall Harbor Arts & Books Fair will be on October 3 & 4.

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.
