PARKING: Secure paid parking is available right next to the show in the DST Systems lot on Water Street. Proceeds benefit a trio of local nonprofits. Some handicap parking on Myrtle Street next to Rite Aid.

For the safety and comfort of all, only bona fide service animals, preferably marked as such can be allowed on show grounds. Also, we love young sailors, but strollers are not compatible with the show docks. Please plan ahead. Thanks in advance for your consideration.


A different vessel will visit the show docks each day.


Penbay Pilot Boat: These guideboats work the waters of the Penobscot and Frenchman Bays around the clock and year round escorting vessels safely to their destinations. 


Schooner Bowdoin: Built in 1921 for Arctic exploration, the Bowdoin made three voyages to the Arctic Circle. It is the Official Vessel of the State of Maine and the flagship of Maine Maritime Academy's Vessel Operations and Technology program.



A fleet of Lobster Boats: The docks will welcome a collection of lobster boats, Maine's iconic vessel.




The Maine Boat & Home Show would not be possible without the tremendous efforts of our intrepid volunteers. From setting up tents and traffic cones, to staffing ticket booths and collecting trash and recycling, our volunteers make it all work.

Want to volunteer? Great! We need handy men and women, hosts and hostesses, and people who love to be by the water helping out. As a thanks, we'll give you two show passes, a cool Show Crew t-shirt, and a year's subscription to Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors magazine. Just fill out this VOLUNTEER FORM and we'll contact you with more information.
