The Native American Festival & Basketmakers Market celebrates 25 years on July 7, 2018, with a new location at the Abbe Museum’s downtown location. The Festival is free and open to the public and features the celebrated Native arts market, Native music, dance, storytelling, craft demonstrations, and a silent auction. A collaborative partnership between the Abbe Museum and the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance (MIBA), the Festival offers visitors, collectors, and gallery owners the opportunity to buy directly from the artists.
Sponsored generously by Maine Public, there is undoubtedly something for everyone at the Native American Festival & Basketmakers Market. Proceeds support the non-profit teaching and apprenticeship programs of MIBA.
Follow the Festival on Facebook for up-to-date information, including the day's schedule of events.
