Harbor Fest, Belfast Rotary Club’s free three-day celebration of the city’s maritime history and traditions, will be held at the Belfast waterfront Friday through Sunday, August 13–15. The weekend will feature a boatbuilding competition, entertainment, food, a rowing regatta, shipyard tours, a cardboard boat race and more.

Other events will include an auction to benefit the Waldo County Pet Food Pantry, a blueberry pancake breakfast and a 5K “Bug Run.”

The art chosen as the graphic theme for the festival is “Last Light of Day,” an original work by Belfast artist Joanne Parent, who has donated the work to be included in the “Evening by the Bay Online Auction” to be held August 1–15.
