Two new events for Windjammer Days Festival 2022

Thu, 04/21/2022 - 8:30am

    Two exciting new events will join the line-up alongside many longtime favorite activities during the 60th annual Windjammer Days this summer.

    Harbor Aglow - a celebration of lights, will bring joy to the harbor on Sunday, June 26. Boat owners are invited to participate and compete for cash, prizes and bragging rights by lighting up their boats for all to enjoy.

    In addition to the traditional parade around the harbor, boat owners can join in the festivities right from their slip or mooring by lighting up from 8:30-10 p.m. The parade will begin at 9 p.m.

    Adding incredible lighting to the harbor will be Tall Ships Oliver Hazard Perry and Thomas E. Lannon. The dockmaster who gets the most boats in their marina to light up is eligible for a $100 prize!

    For more information, registration for Harbor Aglow, and decorating tips to make your boat stand out, visit or contact Kim Gillies at 207-633-6003.

    The Shipyard at Bristol Marine in Boothbay Harbor will be hosting an Antique Boat Parade Pier Party on Thursday, June 30 from 4:30 - 7 p.m. following the Antique Boat Parade, a perennial crowd favorite. The Pier Party will feature live music, appetizers and beverages. The spacious piers are a great place to view the vintage boats, mingle with the captains, and take a tour of the shipyard.

    Tickets for the Pier Party are $40 each and are on sale now at A limited number of tickets are available, so don’t miss your chance to join in the fun!
