Festivals and Events

There’s no shortage of festivals around Maine this September. The 11th Annual Family Jamboree takes place on September 14 in Wells and features games, crafts, and food. For a taste of the season, check out the annual Cornish Apple Festival on September 28.

For a romantic waterfront activity to liven up date night, stop by Portland on Saturday nights for Oysters and Rosé. If actually getting on the water is more your style, consider the Full Moon Sail on the Schooner Olad in Camden on the September 13.


It may be too late in the year to vacation to somewhere like Florida, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hit up a beach near you. Head to the coast and sunbathe on one of the many beautiful beaches by the Atlantic, like Old Orchard Beach and Long Sands Beach.


If you want to take advantage of the beautiful weather before it gets too cold, take a camping trip with the family. Some of the best campgrounds in Maine — like Acadia National Park’s Seawall Campground — are just a 10-minute walk from the ocean. You can also enjoy the natural beauty of the Cape Neddick Oceanside Campground, and Bradbury Mountain State Park.
