If you’re coming to the Maine coast in August (hopefully you are coming to stay with us in Camden) the 7th annual Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors show is worth a visit and is happening in Rockland from August 7-9, 2009. Mary Jo and I went to the show last year (for a Hartstone Inn Cookbook signing) and it was a fun filled day of activities. Many food and beverage vendors to keep your belly full in addition to numerous marine and non-marine related vendors. Following is a description of the event from their website:
“If you love the coast of Maine, you won’t want to miss this show! Come see Maine’s finest artists, architects, boatbuilders, furniture makers, craftsmen, designers, marine gear vendors, and musicians. There’ll be a model yacht pond, live music, a children’s area, exhibits, fine food, the running of the 7th Annual World Championship Boatyard Dog® Trials, and more! As the only in-water boat show in the state, with more than 70 boats in the water and 150 exhibitors on land, there is something for every member of the family.”
