For 26 years, Camden has begun its Christmas celebrations with Christmas by the Sea, a weekend of fun activities for the whole family.
Join us for an evening Christmas parade through the center of Camden on the 29th, followed by the lighting of our holiday trees in town, and the lighting of the tree at the Camden Harbour Inn. The town comes to life with the twinkling lights and the sounds of horse hooves and carriage bells from the free carriage rides through the village.
Santa arrives by boat in Rockport Harbor on Saturday, December 1 in the morning, adding to the excitement and merriment.
The entire weekend is filled with special sales, craft fairs and more. We’re serving a special three course holiday dinner at the nearby Cellardoor Vineyard on Saturday night, it’s part of their meet the Art Collector Maine series and promises to be an extraordinary evening with artist Craig Mooney.
We are offering a two night package for Christmas by the Sea, including the holiday dinner at Cellardoor. Imagine, relax in comfort, indulge in the a la carte champagne breakfast at the Inn, reconnect with the wonder of Christmas that you remember as a child, and purchase unique Christmas gifts for everyone on your list.
Package details are online. We hope to see you for one of our favorite weekends of the year!
