Bucksport Arts Festival

March 18, 2017

40 artists selected

Bucksport, Maine, USA – The 3rd Annual Bucksport Arts Festival will be returning to the waterfront this August with thanks to the generous support of Seaboard Federal Credit Union. As the primary sponsor in 2016, Seaboard FCU will continue their support for 2017 in recognition that the Arts are part of a healthy, thriving community.  As a member-owned cooperative, Seaboard FCU is a vital part of the community itself and strives to provide quality financial services to all members at fair and reasonable rates and terms.  Supporting the Festival is yet another way for Seaboard FCU to support their members, business partners, and community.

Forty artists have recently been selected to participate this summer. These fine artists and craftspeople will be showcasing a diverse selection of good for all to enjoy, including:  paintings, drawings, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, fiber, glass, and woodworking.  Several familiar faces will be returning from previous years, and many new artists will also participating for the first time. All proceeds of the 2017 Festival will benefit Main Street Bucksport, our non-profit partner whose mission is to promote a vibrant downtown Bucksport by supporting existing businesses, attracting new businesses, and supporting cultural arts events.

The Festival is currently seeking food vendors to feed the crowds on Saturday, August 12th. Vendors of all kinds are encouraged to apply, although preference will be given to local businesses with artisanal quality food.  Interested vendors should contact 3leggeddogink@gmail.com for an application.
