Harvest Festival is this Saturday at The Community School in Mount Desert on MDI. It's one of my very favorite events, a small artisan fair with so many wonderful activities to participate in. Make your own holiday wreath, sit around the bonfire, shop the artisan fair, warm up with a delightful soup and then take a chance on a gorgeous pie, cake or quiche! Bring the fam, your kids will love it! Next up is PICNIC Holiday, a wild ride of a fair that has all the best and brightest Maine and New England has to offer. This year it's at Thompson's Point in Portland the perfect venue for 130 craft, art and vintage vendors. Food, drinks, shopping and don't forget to get your photo taken with the YETI.
