The entire weekend will be full of exciting and fun events for the whole family, both on the show grounds and in the community. All events on show grounds are FREE with show admission ($12 adults, under 12 free). Prices vary for the community events.
The show isn't just for adults...bring the kids to our "Just For Kids" area (Tent M) for tons of creative fun. It's all about creating, exploring, and learning, while having fun. From painting, boat making, and pottery to experimenting with musical instruments and setting sail in a kid-friendly skiff on the model pond, imaginations really can run wild at this oasis for the young ones. Take a peek at the 2013 Maine Boats Homes and Harbors Kids’ Activity Tent schedule.
The MBH&H Show presents a fine and varied selection "On the Bandstand," which is centrally located on show grounds (Tent C, near the food). It's a great place to take a short break, or to meet up with your party. You'll find shelter, chairs to sit in, and best of all, some wonderful performers strutting their stuff just for you. Check our our weekend music lineup here.
The Hall of Fame Docks will have some of the fine examples of Maine-built boats that have set the world standard.

Wilbur, Ellis Boat Company, and Jarvis Newman. Located on Dock f.
