  3. Camden Windjammer Festival Weekend- Camden Maine

    Windjammer Festival: Important

    Schedule Changes/Hurricane Earl

    Here is our original post on August 9, 2010 for the upcoming Camden Maine Windjammer Festival event, however the scheduled has been changed due to Hurricane Earl. Our local chamber has posted the following important information regarding the event:

    Following consultations with public safety officials and based on the best weather information available the evening of Wednesday, September 1, the Camden Windjammer Festival committee organizers are delaying the start of the festival unti 4pm on Saturday, This means that the Festival is cancelling all of Friday’s and most of Saturday’s events.

    This is due to both the prospect of heavy rain and strong winds from Hurricane Earl Friday night into Saturday early afternoon and because as a responsible community we do not want to start an event that brings large crowds to town at a time when Emergency Management Agencies are likely to be counseling caution and limited travel.

    The festival will begin officially at 4pm on Saturday with an official announcement over the PA. Saturday’s events will consist of:

    7:30pm  outdoor movie, Library Amphitheatre (wind permitting)
    7:30pm (doors open) Paranoid Social Club and guests, Camden Opera House

    On Sunday, we are adding the pancake breakfast (7-10am) and the Chowder Challenge (11:30am-2pm)- both contingent on availability of both volunteers and product from the Rotary Clubs. We are also moving the fireworks to 9pm on Sunday evening, contingent on an ok from the Coast Guard and Central Maine Pyrotechnics (the fireworks company).

    All other Sunday events will proceed as scheduled, unless changing weather conditions require further changes.

    Full Revised Schedule: Available online atwww.camdenwindjammerfestival.com/events
