Winterfest 2019

Please join The Camden Public Library for a refreshed Winterfest celebration! Winterfest is generously sponsored by First National Bank. The Camden Public Library will host the annual Winterfest Carnival on Saturday, February 2, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. The day kicks off with a Polar Plunge, organized by SunDog Outdoor Expeditions, at 11:00 am. Watch intrepid souls take on the ice-bound waters of Camden Harbor!

There will be booths of carnival games for all ages in the Amphitheatre, and Dark Follies Vaudeville will perform their music, dance, comedy, and fire routines throughout the day. DJ Terry Frank will keep the party going in between Dark Follies performances.

An excellent selection of hot food will be available for purchase throughout the event. All sales go directly to supporting Camden Public Library events like Winterfest! The lunch booth is hosted by Maine Coast Orthodontics in the Camden Library Amphitheatre.

While you eat, come to watch the ice sculpture exhibition! This year, there will be one central sculpture being created by a large team led by Master Carver Tim Pierce, and eight smaller sculptures surrounding, each worked on by its own team. The theme for the sculptures will be “Fantastic Beasts”. The Beasts will be lit at night, so be sure to come back and see them in their full glory!

Inside the library, Miss Amy will have themed crafts and face painting from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm and All That Jazz will perform live jazz favorites at 1:00 pm.
