Family and Kids Activities



We pride ourselves on being a family friendly festival and offering activities for all ages.  We say “Family Activities”, because we want guests young and old to come together to participate.  In addition to offering a variety of arts and crafts  and games, in 2017, we teamed up with our friends at 317 Main Community Music Center, in Yarmouth, Maine to assist us in bringing some musical programming as well.  Join in Little Roots classes with the youngest of fans and Discover Bluegrass with Carter Logan.

A playground, sandy beach, Bingo, Rec Hall, Paint Classes and nightly family movies (Th, F, S & S) add to the fun!

Examples of past Activities:

  • Building Fairy Houses
  • Learning about Horseshoe Crabs
  • Bubble Fun
  • Tie-Dying
  • Scavenger Hunts
  • Hula Hoop Contests

Most Family Activities are held under the White Tent in the Playground Area or in the Rec Hall.  Check the Program Booklet on arrival for details or ask at the Information Tent.
