33rd Laudholm Nature Crafts Festival
125 Juried Exhibitors in a Beautiful Seaside Setting
A popular tradition continues on the weekend after Labor Day. Now in its 33rd year, the prestigious Laudholm Nature Crafts Festival features items created by about 125 New England artists and craftspeople.
The Laudholm festival boasts consistently high quality, whether products are practical, whimsical, inspirational, or dignified. Artists in the juried event work with a variety of media, including precious metals, fabric, clay, glass, and wood. Music and local food round out the 2-day festival.
The event is a critical fundraiser that benefits education, conservation, and scientific research at the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve. The reserve encompasses more than 2,000 acres of protected lands on the southwest coast of Maine. This festival takes place on a high point above salt marshes and beaches that are accessible by a 7-mile system of trails.
Come on up for a warm welcome, inspirational exhibits, and a great day in nature.
