The 11th annual festival of Maine’s finest, award-winning Native American artists will be held at Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village.
The Maine Native American Summer Market provides a rare opportunity to purchase museum-quality crafts directly from Maine’s finest Wabanaki artists, nationally recognized and honored for their role in the preservation of important traditions. A wide selection of crafts are offered for a range of prices from a few dollars to several hundred dollars (cash/personal check accepted by all artists). Rain or shine. Free admission.
BBQ dinner plates will be for sale to the public (while supplies last).
More than 40 members of the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac and Maliseet tribes will demonstrate traditional Wabanaki art forms including basketmaking, stone carving, bark etching, beadwork and jewelry, in addition to featured performances of Storytelling by Geo Neptune, drumming, singing, dancing and storytelling by the Burnurwurbskek Singers and Dancers from the Penobscot Nation. This is the southernmost gathering of Wabanaki artists in the state of Maine. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to learn about and experience first-hand Maine’s Native American culture.
