— Bon Voyage, Labor Day Weekend —

Thank You!

The 2019 Camden Windjammer Festival is now done, the long weekend is over and most local kids have started school. This Labor Day Weekend was a beauty, with blue skies, pleasant temperatures and cooling breezes. Locals and visitors alike traversed the public landing, partaking in pancakes and chowder, buying and learning, touring and bidding, competing and playing.

We want to thank all of the volunteers who attended meetings and worked long hours during the festival. A big thank you goes to the sponsors, without whom this free public event would not be possible. And a very special thank you goes out to the captains of the windjammers and schooners, who provided talent for the Talent Show, space at their tables for the Windjammer Dinner Auction winners and graciously welcomed aboard myriad curious people to tour the vessels, their pride and joy.

Save the date for next year, when the Camden Windjammer Festival will be held Friday and Saturday, Sept. 4 & 5.

Camden Windjammer Festival recognizes the importance of these glorious sailing vessels to Camden’s maritime history, with a special salute to the captains and crew of the town’s day sailers, and the vessels that comprise the Maine Windjammer Association and Maine Windjammer Cruises, among others.
