Fall Harbor Arts and Books Fair in Camden

Posted October 03, 2019


The trees aren’t the only place you’ll find gorgeous color this season! The Fall Harbor Arts & Books Fair is back with booths displaying over 50 juried artists and craftspeople during the first weekend of October. Vendors will fill Atlantic Avenue, Harbor Park, and the Amphitheatre with items for every taste and pocketbook.

Shoppers and browsers will see paintings, photography, greeting cards, jewelry, leatherwork, sculptures, baskets, scrimshaw, and more from some of Maine’s most exciting and talented artisans. Whether you are doing early holiday shopping, searching for home décor, or just want to treat yourself to a cozy new scarf, this fair is a perennial favorite with a reputation for quality.

The Camden Public Library hosts the Harbor Arts & Books Fair, and concurrently holds a giant used book sale outside under the tents.

The event is free and family-friendly, making it a perfect day trip during the most beautiful time of the year! Coastal panoramic views from nearby Mount Battie are not to be missed — and area inns, restaurants, stores, and schooners all welcome our Harbor Arts guests. The fair will be open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, October 5, and 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday, October 6.

Harbor Arts & Books is hosted and produced to benefit the Camden Public Library. Generous support for the fair is provided by lead sponsor The Reny Charitable Foundation with support from TREEKEEPERS LLC-Johnson’s Aboriculture. For more information, visit
