Camden Windjammer Festival

Event date/time: August 30 - August 31, 2019

Celebrate Camden’s maritime heritage and living traditions at the annual Camden Windjammer Festival. From the great age of sail when coasting schooners were launched in the harbor, through the birth of the windjammer business in the 1930s, to today’s windjammer fleet and elegant yachts, sailing ships have always defined our lovely, vibrant community.

On Friday, watch the magnificent schooners as they maneuver into the harbor, bid on dinners aboard one of the fleet, and then watch a talent show by schooner crews in Harbor Park followed by fireworks over the harbor. The fun continues all weekend with a lobster crate race, a Build-A-Boat contest, fish relay race, nautical skills, displays of maritime activities and history, Chowder Challenge, tours of the windjammers and fun for all.
