CAMDEN — The Camden Public Library is excited to announce that plans are underway for the Summer Harbor Arts & Books Fair to be held on the weekend of July 9 and 10. This beloved and well-attended event returns after two years of cancellation due to the pandemic. The fair is an excellent opportunity for artists, crafters and makers to exhibit their work on the beautiful grounds surrounding the library.

Harbor Arts & Books Fair is an admission-free, family-friendly event, making it a perfect day trip or weekend destination. Area inns, restaurants, and schooner cruises welcome Harbor Arts guests — and everything is conveniently located in one of the most picturesque and walkable towns on the Maine coast.

Applications are now open for vendors to participate in this juried show. The application deadline is midnight on June 6, 2022 — or earlier, if the venue becomes filled to capacity. More information and the vendor application can be found at Questions about the fair can be emailed to
