Windjammer Days has been recognized as a top 100 event in the country by the American Bus Association for 2014.
The Friends of Windjammer Days, a group of local citizens and business owners, says the yearly celebration of these magnificent tall ships, which played a key role in making Boothbay Harbor a center of American ship building, has historically been a community-led effort that kicks off the summer tourist season and brings a significant boost to the region’s economy. Last year, the festival generated thousands of dollars in revenue for local businesses.
“We are excited to bring this event back to its roots as a community-led effort,” said Dianne Gimbel, a co-chair of Friends of Windjammer Days. “We are grateful for the many volunteers who have already stepped up to make this year’s event memorable, and especially to the Boothbay Harbor Region Chamber of Commerce for their sponsorship and support.”
