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. About 65-80 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.
We would love to welcome you to the salty air and intimate surroundings of our Harbor Park and Amphitheatre during the time 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.
