Dear Fest Friends,
It is with great sadness that we announce the decision to cancel Harbor Fest for another year.  The past year has been incredibly trying for our beloved small businesses, and at this time their primary focus is to provide their customers with the best experience in service and food.  As you can imagine, the food tasting event involves an incredible amount of extra time, staff and effort; all of which they are still catching up on.

We encourage you to keep your plans, visit our beautiful region, and patronize these wonderful businesses who have given us so much over the past 8 years of Harbor Fest.  


For those who purchased tickets in 2020 and planned to use them this year, please email Lori for a full refund.

We thank you for your understanding, and wish you a wonderful summer season.



A 3 day adventure for your senses!  Weekend Passport includes food tastings and live music at local restaurants.
An unforgettable  weekend is guaranteed!

Plus a Cold River Cocktail Competition
(21+ purchase required, not included in tasting passport).  


Course winds through one of twenty Boothbay Region Land Trust Preserves on our peninsula.  The scenery and natural surroundings are spectacular, and the terrain is well maintained, with little elevation.  Please be aware this is a wooded trail, and most ideal for trail runners and/or walkers.

Challenging and Scenic:  Truly a one of its kind in Maine, this course offers  miles of water views, from inner harbor, to open ocean, to lakes and  tidal rivers.  It crosses over two islands and a historic footbridge.  It passes by three waterfront parks, (perfect for spectators), and through our waterfront harbor village.

The CLC and Boothbay Region YMCA’s have made the decision to not move forward with a virtual race option for 2021. Due to the pandemic, our resources and staffing are limited and we have decided to focus our efforts on our chronic disease education work that this race supports annually. We look forward to being apart of Harbor Fest 2022. Until then, lace up your shoes and enjoy our beautiful Maine backyard.

The show that marvels its audience year after year! 
Absolutely everything about this show is sea inspired and original!  From the historic working waterfront venue, to the lobster trap runway that carries dozens of models the length of an enormous boat shed. 

The show celebrates local merchants, talented designers and Mainer's who dedicate their lives to preserving our working waterfront.
