“Come for the ships and chanties, stay for the magic”

Schoonerfest will return in August 2024

Over two fun weekends in 2021 and 2022, we celebrated Wiscasset´s maritime history with historic ships, music, reenactments, art, family events, a triathlon, food trucks, a beer garden, and an ice cream shack.
Schoonerfest will be taking 2023 off as the Wiscasset waterfront undergoes renovation.

In the meantime, drop by the Schoonerfest table at the Creative Alliance’s 2023 Art Walk (June 29, July 27, August 31, September 28) and add your artistic touch to a schooner like those you see in the background of this page.

Featuring free music performances, historical demonstrations, and family entertainment.

We were proud to welcome the historic schooners Tyrone and When and If to Wiscasset in 2022.
