47th Annual Fall Foliage Festival 2014
It's time once again for the region's Fall Foliage Festival - our 47th year! The Boothbay Information Center along with the Boothbay Railway Village co–sponsor this true New England Craft Fair! Every Columbus Day Weekend for nearly half a century the Museumís Village Green has welcomed dozens of vendors with handmade items and fabulous food along with a wide variety of live entertainment. The children's area promises to be fun and entertaining for the younger crowd!
The beautiful crafts, art, and great eats are center stage on the Village Green surrounded by the historic buildings and structures of the Boothbay Railway Village. Rides on the narrow gauge steam train and the opportunity for guests to explore exhibits detailing Maineís railroad heritage, interpreting village life, and displaying more than 55 antique automobiles set this event apart.
The addition of craft demonstrations continue this year. "You Got it From Me" Raku Pottery from Kennebunkport will demonstrate glazing and furling. Visitors will also see beeswax candles being dipped by Marc Plaisted of Pittston. Demonstrations will continue throughout the two days.
Foodies will delight in the traditional coastal offerings of lobster rolls, hot cider, fish chowder, kettle corn, and much more.
As always, children will have great fun in the children's area with face painting, lawn games, treasure hunts and more 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m., and Sunday 11:15–4:00.
