50th Annual Fall Foliage Festival
October 7 @ 9:00 am - October 9 @ 4:00 pm$4.00
It’s our 50th Anniversary and we wanted to do something monumental to mark the occasion – so we are adding a day! This year for the first time ever Fall Foliage Festival will continue through Monday.
Every Columbus Day Weekend the Museum’s Village Green welcomes dozens of vendors of handmade items and fabulous food along with a wide variety of live entertainment. The sound of the train’s steam whistle resonating throughout the crisp fall air reminds guests that this is not your typical craft show.
The beautiful crafts are center stage on the Village Green surrounded by the historic buildings and structures of the Boothbay Railway Village. Rides on the narrow gauge steam train and the opportunity for guests to explore exhibits detailing Maine’s railroad heritage, interpreting village life, and displaying more than 60 antique automobiles set this event apart.
Artisan demonstrations, live music and a children’s corner adds to the fun of this family tradition.
New vendor applications will be accepted starting on February 1st for fine arts, crafts and handmade products, local foods and for regional non-profits to exhibit. Download an application packet or contact Margaret Hoffman at 207-633-4727 or via email for more information.
