About the Festival
June 4 - 9
Since 2004, the Kennebunkport Festival has been a fun, delicious way to kick off the busy summer season in southern Maine while recognizing the talents of our local artists, chefs, and musicians.
Orchestrated by business owners and friends, the week-long celebration generates a lot of excitement in the community, raises money for charity, and delivers great benefits to local businesses during what was previously a slow time of year.
The week consists of an a la carte event schedule beginning with cocktail parties and dinner parties followed by larger events focused on some or all of the following—art, music, food, drinks, tasting, and dancing.
Each year our festival evolves. New events are added, core events are built upon, themes change, and the hard-working, fun-filled organizers are shuffled around, ensuring each year’s experience is unique, special, and very KPT.
Join us, the breeze off the ocean is just lovely.
In 2018 the Kennebunkport Festival raised over $81,000 for Maine charities.
