22nd Annual Freeport Fall Festival

Freeport Fall Festival 95 Main Street, Freeport

Each year on the first weekend in October, Visit Freeport brings together over 150 of the best New England artists, makers and local food producers for a three-day festival throughout Downtown Freeport.

In addition to browsing local art, join us at the Discovery Stage on the L.L.Bean campus for three days of live music. And, thanks to our generous sponsors, it’s all FREE!

Friday, October 1 from noon - 6 pm
Saturday, October 2 from 10 am - 6 pm
Sunday, October 3 from 10 am - 4 pm

Please note: While we hope that the 2021 Festival will be held with few modifications, we will be watching State of Maine and CDC recommendations closely and make any decisions about activities with public health as our number one concern.
