Every Columbus Day Weekend for nearly half a century the Boothbay Railway Village Green has welcomed dozens of vendors of handmade items and fabulous food along with a wide variety of live entertainment. The sound of the train’s steam whistle resonating throughout the crisp fall air reminds guests that this is not your typical event.
The beautiful crafts are center stage on the Village Green surrounded by the historic buildings and structures of the Boothbay Railway Village. Rides on the narrow gauge steam train and the opportunity for guests to explore exhibits detailing Maine’s railroad heritage, interpreting village life, and displaying more than 60 antique automobiles set this event apart. Artisan demonstrations, live music and a children’s corner adds to the fun of this family tradition. The Maine Coffee Bar will be in attendance with both hot and cold coffee.
