Wiscasset Village is making plans for a festive holiday season with Holiday Marketfest, four days of special events, unique shopping opportunities and treats for the whole family.

From Thursday through Sunday, Dec. 7-10, stores and galleries will be open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. or later, offering gift ideas, music and munchies. Local merchants will be joined on Friday and Saturday by pop-up vendors and food trucks in several locations. The historic Nickels-Sortwell House, its rooms elegantly decorated for Christmas by local floral designers, will open its doors for tours. And the 19th century barn around the corner on Federal Street is guaranteed to beckon children with an ancient fire truck decorated for the event by Wiscasset’s Fire Society.

Children can meet Santa and sing along with carolers. The library will have a kids-only shopping venue. A horse-drawn carriage will carry shoppers from one end of the village to the other.

Wiscasset is going to be a magical place during the holidays.Wiscasset Holiday Marketfest 2017 is a Wiscasset Area Chamber of Commerce event designed to welcome shoppers with a huge variety of gift options and lots of holiday cheer. Major sponsors are Camden National Bank, Carl M.P. Larrabee Agency, Carriage House Gardens, Greg’s Used Cars, Norm’s Used Cars, Red’s Eats, Sheepscot Bay Physical Therapy, Tim Dunham Realty, and Wiscasset Ford, with additional support from Cod Cove Inn.
