Windjammer Days Festival
June 24 to June 09
Every year we have people from all over the world join us at the Kennebec Inn Bed and Breakfast for this unforgettable Coastal Maine experience. If you’ve never seen it before, we strongly encourage you check it out as you’ll see beautiful windjammers sail into Boothbay Harbor, including a motley gang of pirates that will defend Boothbay Harbor against the British invasion reminiscent of the War of 1812. Enjoy sailboat races, a golf tournament, a unique antique boat parade, a lively street parade, incredible fireworks over the harbor on Wednesday evening, creative kids programs and games, free concerts, and an artist's alley and craft show and the 35th Annual Rocky Coast Road Race...the list goes on. You have to check it out!
Come stay with us and make the short drive to Boothbay on the days you want, or for the activities that interest you the most. If you're coming for the entire week, please call us to see about our special rates just for this event.
