Ice Carving Teams Wanted for WINTERFEST!

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1 @ 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM. We only have a few slots left for ice carving teams! If you are interested in participating in the ice carving at this year’s Winterfest event, please email Ken Gross at for an application. 


Christmas is over, and now it’s just doggone cold! Not to worry, that means it’s time for Winterfest at the Camden Public Library. We have decided to add a fur-ocious twist to this year’s festivities: The Dog Days of Winter Fashion Show! That’s right; we’re going to invite the community to dress up their pups in their most fetching winter wear to walk the catwalk. It will be a fashion show for dogs of all sizes: teeny-weenie to husky. We’re looking for the sassiest most paw-sh dogs in the Midcoast area to parade for the pup-arazzi. If you would like your pet to participate, please arrive in the Amphitheatre at 11:45 am to get ready for the show at noon. The first 60 pups will get to pick out a toy donated by The Maine Dog, and all participants can enter a free raffle to win a basket of doggie goods donated by Loyal Biscuit Co.  No pre-registration required.

The Dog Days of Winter Fashion Show will be held alongside all of your favorite Winterfest activities: ice-carving, food, music, children’s crafts, and the Sundog Outdoor Expedition Polar Plunge at 2:00 pm. Our fur-st priority is to bring the community outdoors to socialize and smile. We are looking to our neighbors to help us make this an un-furgettable event! It has so much pet-tential.
