If you just now found out, you will be surprised and delighted to know it has been happening for 16 years. There is music, theatre, more music, artists in action, even more music, dancing, poetry, a wide variety of particularly good food, and a lot more music. There are bagpipes, a native american flute, chamber music, folk, fiddles, gypsy, jazz, latin, bebop, all frosted by a final bonfire on the waterfront and lots of interesting food events all over town. This is one of the biggest events in Maine held in the exquisite little harbor city of Belfast. If you love Mid-Coast Maine, this celebration is happening to celebrate you, so be there.
