The Christmas by the Sea Festival is a weekend-long celebration that features discounted shopping and a variety of other Christmas events. Don’t miss out on a holiday-themed concert, the community tree lighting, and the parade, all in downtown Camden, Maine.  

One of our favorite parts is when Santa sails into Rockport Harbour with his helper, Ellen the Elf, on a lobster boat! Stay up to date with the festival’s annual dates on Facebook, where the organizers typically post all the event details a month before the festival.
