About the Kennebunkport Festival
The Kennebunkport Festival is an annual event celebrating the best food, wine, and art of Maine. Each year, more than 3,400 attendees come to celebrate for six days of excellent food and drink — plus amazing music, art, activities, and more.
Set in “The Kennebunks” (the side-by-side communities of two towns: Kennebunk and Kennebunkport), the festival is quintessential Maine. Come to enjoy the natural settings of the community, including the many shops, galleries, and eateries in the area.
This year, the annual Kennebunkport Festival will take place from June 4th to June 9th. Many events will be taking place every day and evening of the festival. Check here to see a list of the festival events and get a better idea of how and when to plan your trip! Consider Cocktails at The Burleigh on the evening of June 5th or attend one of the many Art of Dining dinners, featuring different chefs and eclectic menus every night!
Where to Stay on Your Trip to The Kennebunks
Both Kennebunk and Kennebunkport can be extremely busy during the Kennebunk Festival in June, which is why we advise finding a better place to stay in nearby Ogunquit.
Ogunquit, a local community right on the sea, is a word that literally means “beautiful place by the sea” in the Abenaki tribal language. Visitors come to Ogunquit from around the country and the world to enjoy the beautiful beaches, the lovely sea breezes, and the many things to do in town. We also think it’s the ideal place to stay for those planning on going to the Kennebunk Festival.
Our seaside inn — The Colonial Inn — features luxurious guest rooms and all the amenities you’re looking for in a comfortable hotel. We’ve been in Ogunquit, catering to travelers of all kinds since 1890! And we’re still going strong today.
Our friendly and attentive staff will ensure that you have a pleasant and comfortable stay with us. Feel free to enjoy a drink at the service bar or a relaxing lounge on our wrap around porch. Every guest will get a complimentary continental breakfast.
