The Captain Lord Mansion Bed & Breakfast Inn Asks: “What is the Kennebunkport Festival? And When Is It Scheduled?”

Kport Festival logo The Kennebunkport Festival began six years ago as a modest event called "Arts in the Inns".  It was held the first weekend in June and featured local artists personally showing their work in the various area bed and breakfast inns.  The last several years the event grew into the Kennebunkport Fine Living Festival with an additional emphasis on fine food and wine being paired with the art.  The food and wine events became paramount with tented, open air venues of wine/food tastings, art shows and also there were extraordinary culinary dinners by renowed local chefs and these dinners were hosted at private homes.  Also, there were very special dinners held at the world famous White Barn Inn.  This year the Festival will again be the first weekend in June and the events have been expanded to appeal to even more visitors to Kennebunkport.  We at the Captain Lord Mansion can assist you in planning which events might be of interest to you.  Also, as part of our memebrship in the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport, we are sponsoring the "Brews and Tunes" event to be held at the Pilot House Boat Yard, from 3pm to 6pm, Saturday, June 4th.  We'll have discount tickets to that event for our guests.  Check out the Festival Website for a detailed calender of events and make your plans now to be in Kennebunkport that weekend!  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
