The Native American Festival
Saturday, July 7, 2018, from 9 am to 5 pm (2 shifts)
The Native American Festival & Basketmakers Market (NAF) is an opportunity to meet and mingle with local artists and see their amazing work, all while learning about contemporary Wabanaki art and culture. And in order to make it happen, we could use your help! This year your support is especially important because the Festival is moving into downtown Bar Harbor and taking over the Abbe Museum backyard. Exciting changes lead to more volunteer opportunities, so be sure to reach out to see what’s in store!
