Attendees at the fest can purchase individual tickets to many unique dining and entertainment events hosted throughout the Kennebunkport area in the Art of Dining series. Each event is individually ticketed to prevent overbooking, and offers an opportunity to pick and choose from the cuisines that most appeal to you. Culminating in the headline event, the Grand Tapas Party on June 13, featuring more than two dozen chefs and wineries offering samples at the Pilot House Restaurant, there’s no shortage of dining delights at the festival.

The signature concert event, Brews+Tunes, offers festivalgoers an afternoon of sun and fun with beers and live music at The Green at the Captain Lord Mansion on June 13. With bands taking the stage throughout the afternoon, the concert theme is “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay,” and is sure to inspire some great hits and covers from returning act Spencer Albee and special guests Kat Wright & the Indomitable Soul Band.

The winner of the Editor’s Choice and Artist’s Choice awards, as well as winners selected by attendees’ votes, will be displayed at Maine Art Shows in Kennebunk.
