At this year's Windjammer Days Festival you will find something for everyone and most of the events are FREE to the public! You will see beautiful windjammers sail into Boothbay Harbor, including a motley gang of pirates that will defend Boothbay Harbor against the British in a tribute to the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 striking not terror but delight in the hearts of all those they encounter.
Enjoy sailboat races, a unique antique boat parade, a lively street parade, incredible fireworks over the harbor on Wednesday evening, creative kids programs and games, free concerts, and an artist's alley and craft show are just a few of the family fun events. This is just a sampling of all the fun and free events you will experience when you come to Boothbay Harbor for Windjammer Days 51st Annual celebration.
This wonderful event celebrates and honors a time before there were planes, trains, and automobiles and sailing ships were the best way to travel the world or transport goods long distances. Windjammers were the grandest of the merchant ships from the era, enormous sailing boats with several large masts designed to carry massive amounts of cargo from one continent to another. For centuries, the Boothbay Harbor Region has been a center of American shipping and shipbuilding, its harbor graced by elegant Windjammers as well as other commercial pleasure ships.
Visit the 51st Annual Windjammer Days Festival for an unforgettable coastal Maine experience... a great time for family, fun and fabulous food!
