This event is Maine's only in-the-water boat show, and it is also the only show to feature dozens of Maine's most talented furniture makers, architects, and builders combined on one spectacular waterfront site. These craftsmen present all the essential components for living the good life on the coast of Maine.

There will be hands-on demonstrations, live music, a marine activities area, a special exhibit on the Evolution of the Maine Lobster boat, demonstrations, and, of course, the ever-popular World Championship Boatyard Dog Trials on Sunday.

 If you enjoy life on the Maine coast, the show has something for you. Admission: $12 adult, under 12 free. Gates open at 10 a.m. daily. Pets will not be allowed on show grounds. Produced by Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors magazine, now in its 23d year. For more information, call 800-565-4951. www.maineboats.com
