Join us August 31-September 1, 2019 for a rollicking good time!

This year will be the best ever!  For 32 years, the end of summer in Eastport, Maine, has been celebrated with a festival, a gathering, an homage to our local resources, especially the Atlantic salmon raised in the cold waters of Passamaquoddy Bay. This year we will mix it up a bit with a Seafood Court on Saturday with crab rolls, seafood chowders, and oysters during lunch time 11:30-1 or until gone. Local restaurants will feature salmon if you can’t wait until Sunday. The Tides Institute will sponsor a self-guided tour of their campus of architectural gems. Paint Eastport Day with an art auction is Saturday, as is the Farmers Market. A Moonlight Movie will be shown at dusk in the Sutherland Amphitheater.

Salmon Sunday! The centerpiece of Salmon Sunday has always been the salmon barbecue. With the purchase of a full dinner, enjoy a boat ride to the salmon pens in Cobscook Bay. We eat under the big tent in a crowd of friends, neighbors and visitors. We look up from our repast and gaze contentedly at the breathtaking view of the Passamaquoddy Bay just a few feet away. Those of us who live here try not to take our stunning surroundings for granted, and we’re happy to share with travelers who are wise enough to step off the beaten path to seek us out. Come for music, arts and crafts, galleries, gift shops and museums, locally brewed beers, (wine too), a farmers’ market, flea market, delicious seafood, and a fabulous salmon barbecue dinner.
