Celebrate the Arts at the Brunswick Outdoor Arts Festival

Come explore one of Maine’s hidden treasures: The Outdoor Arts Festival.

One of our favorite events in downtown Brunswick is the Brunswick Outdoor Arts Festival. For the past 10 years, artisans have been showcasing their pieces for people to peruse and purchase. Located on Maine Street, this art festival is considered to be one of the main events in Brunswick each summer.
This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 20 – rain or shine. Admission is free, so it’s a great event for the whole family. With events like face painting and hula hooping, your children will be excited to go! If you don’t have any children, there are still some demonstrations that will catch your eye. From jewelry making, woodworking and quilting, there will be something for everyone to watch and enjoy. Plus, award-winning artist JoAnn Catsos will be conducting a basket weaving demonstration.

The festival originally started with 35 artists. Today, the festival has more than 100 artists in attendance. With a variety of media types, there will be something for everyone. Artisans from all throughout the region will be coming to showcase their wares, including ceramics, baskets, jewelry, painting and other types of media. People come from all across greater New England and beyond to explore the festival and to sell their wares.

The festival also includes live music with a variety of genres including bluegrass, Cajun and folk music – there’s something for everyone! The Outdoor Arts Festival has two different stages, both with a fantastic lineup that will be easy for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to get there early to enjoy the tunes all day long!

The festival is about a 20-minute walk from our quaint inn – perfect for those that love to walk and enjoy the scenery and historic charms of downtown Brunswick. If you’re not a fan of walking, the festival is only a five-minute drive! It’s a perfect location for those looking to explore downtown Brunswick and truly get a taste of the culture of our area. You are certain to find those one-of-a-kind pieces that you need to spice up your décor with such a vast selection of pieces, each handcrafted and made with love.
