Art and music TOGETHER are sublime. During the 2019 season, enjoy the sounds of Peter Campbell playing bagpipes and Rick Turcotte on guitar - on the Village sidewalks. Many other fine musicians will be performing in galleries through the summer.

Food Trucks in Wiscasset Village during WAW

In 2019, O’Oysters returns to Middle St. in July, Aug., and Sept., along with Mexican specialties from Taco the Town in Sept.

Community Weaving Project

New in 2019:  The gallery at 64 Main St. becomes a hands-on, drop-in community art space where visitors, locals, kids, and adults are invited to create simple weavings to take home or leave behind for the ‘community wall.’ MAKE ART!

Local artists will also be exhibiting:

In June: Kate Nordstrom’s dream-inspired paintings; and Mark Tripp’s abstract photos.
