What started as the Kennebunkport Fine Food & Art Festival a decade ago has expanded and become simply “The Festival” of Kennebunkport Maine! The Kennebunkport Festival is now in year 16 with event tickets priced from $30 for cocktail parties each night, to as much as $200 for exclusive Chef dinners at private mansions on the beach, Ocean Ave and Wood Fired Maine at Wells Laudholm Farm. The Kennebunkport Festival is in early June each year.
A portion of The Kennebunkport Festival proceeds go to a local Maine charity – 2019 raised $158,000! Its very charitable and its also an event for sampling local Chefs’ best bites, sipping cocktails on the Kennebunk River, enjoying art and music, a week to see and be seen in the famous town of Kennebunkport!
From the cocktail parties to the after parties (see the schedule below), it’s a festival infused with high spirit, spirits, art, food, music and Maine scenery. It’s hardly a locals event, instead its hobnobbing with the publications folks from Portland, chefs from around the state, and the well heeled second-home owners. But its a feel good, do good festival nonetheless.
See you at The Kennebunkport Festival! Eat, drink and be merry in Maine!
