Brief Description:

18th Annual Maine Boat & Home Show
Harbor Park, Rockland, Maine
August 7-9, 2020
The annual Maine Boat & Home Show welcomes between 8,000 and 10,000 visitors to a scenic waterfront location in Rockland (the Arts Capital of Maine) during the peak of the summer season (the second weekend in August). The event features boats in the water, boats on land, marine gear vendors, fine furniture and home wares, arts, architecture, live music, and delicious food. This is the largest in-the-water boat show north of Newport, Rhode Island, and it is also the only show to feature dozens of Maine’s most talented artisans, furniture makers, architects, and builders combined on one spectacular waterfront site. These craftspeople present all the essential components for living the good life on the coast of Maine.

Fun family activities include a selection of Icon Boats on the docks, an array of food trucks, and the light-hearted World Championship Boatyard Dog® Trials on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. (only pre-entered dogs may compete, see for entry information. No other pets are allowed on show grounds.). This show is a must for everyone who enjoys life on the Maine coast.
