Harpswell Day

Join Harpswell Historical Society and Harpswell Heritage Land Trust for a celebration of traditional handcrafts and subsistence skills. This event happens rain or shine at the Harpswell Historical Society Museum, Centennial Hall, the Meeting House, the one-room schoolhouse, and outdoors. For all ages, there will be much to see, do, and learn about during this free event celebrating Harpswell’s history.

Local artisans will demonstrate handcrafts and skills that were central to the people of Harpswell in the past. Many of the demonstrations will have an element of interactive participation. Entertainment will include live fiddle music, storytelling, and guided history tours. In addition to the talks and tours, you will have the opportunity to deepen your understanding of Harpswell’s rich history by browsing artifacts in the Harpswell Historical Society museum.

This is a family-friendly event and is free and open to all. Parking is at the Elijah Kellogg Church, 917 Harpswell Neck Road, Harpswell. Handicapped parking is at the Harpswell Historical Society Museum, 929 Harpswell Neck Road.
