The Ghost of Paul Revere will be the headlining act on Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Boothbay Food & Music Festival. This Maine-based band has a large following and often sells out at performances around Maine and beyond. The Boston Globe raved that the musicians “create the type of music for which festivals are made.”
Tickets for the festival are $20 per person for three signature acts. The festival will feature Dr. Zog at 5 p.m., followed by Motor Booty Affair at 6:30 p.m., culminating with the foot-stompin’ sounds of the Ghost of Paul Revere at 8:30 p.m. Purchase tickets at boothbayfoodandmusic.com.
Expect three days of Maine’s best food, beer, wine, spirits, entertainment, and music for all to enjoy. There will be something for everyone.
The festival will kick off with the popular Claw Down on Thursday evening. A gourmet lobster lover’s dream, top chefs compete head-to-head to bring their own unique take on the perfect lobster bite. Indulge in each delicious lobster bite and vote for the favorite. This seventh annual Claw Down is co-sponsored by the Boothbay Region Chamber of Commerce. Tickets for the Claw Down can also be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce.
The excitement will continue with a dinner dance on Friday night with decadent dining and entertainment under the tent (or the stars) at the luxurious Boothbay Harbor Country Club. Rupert’s Orchestra will have people dancing all night long.
Family Fest will take place on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with lots of inflatables, games, live music by Dr. Zog, and performances that the whole family will enjoy, including a performance by Wacky Chad, of America’s Got Talent. A balloon-twisting clown and caricature artist will also be on hand to interact and engage kids.
The festival will round out with the music fest on Saturday night.
This inaugural event is a community-wide effort led by local business leaders working together to bring this festival to the Boothbay community. Thanks to the generous support of sponsors, this is a festival with a great cause.
Proceeds from the festival will benefit several local nonprofit organizations, three of which are focused on helping children and young adults from the region: Boothbay Region YMCA, Boothbay Region Student Aid Fund, and the Boothbay Region Community Resources Council, as well as Boothbay Railway Village.
To help support this new festival, there are a wide variety of opportunities to volunteer at each one of the events. Call 633-4727 or email email@example.com, Margaret Hoffman, at Boothbay Railway Village to learn more.
