The annual festival of Wabanaki’s finest, award-winning artists is BACK!

The Keepers of Traditions
Basket making, stone carving, birch bark etching, woodcarving, doll making, beadwork and jewelry making are among the oldest, enduring, and unique traditions passed down through generations of Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac, and Maliseet peoples, known as the Wabanaki, or “People of the Dawn.”

Wabanaki Marketplace
Over 40 of the finest, award-winning artists will participate in the Wabanaki Marketplace for their southernmost gathering in the State of Maine. Don’t miss this special opportunity to appreciate Wabanaki culture firsthand through basket making, bead working, storytelling, drumming, singing, and dancing.

Sustaining Cultural Practices
Purchase museum-quality crafts directly from Wabanaki artists recognized for preserving important cultural traditions. Crafts will be offered at a wide range of price points. It is recommended that
shoppers are prepared with cash and/or personal checks since not all artists accept debit/credit cards.
