MB&H Show - Visitor Information

The Annual Maine Boat & Home Show is typically held the second weekend of August. Gates open at 10 a.m. daily

Maine Boats Homes and Harbors Show

On the docks at the Maine Boat & Home Show, Rockland, Maine.

There is always so much to see and do at the Maine Boat & Home Show. In addition to a fleet of great boats in the water and on land, plus tents filled with booth exhibits, there'll be wonderful live music, a variety of events, fabulous food, a beer tent, and (of course) the wild and zany World Championship Boatyard Dog® Trials on Sunday at 10:30. Come cheer on these brave pooches (but do leave your pets at home, they will not be allowed on show grounds).

We hope you'll join us for this great summer event. Make plans now — come to Rockland early to enjoy all the area has to offer!
