Destination Events

The Camden-Rockland Region just might be the world’s capital of fun and intellectual engagement. Think about it: one month you’re racing across a string of bobbing lobster crates; the next you’re viewing the finest new documentary films. One weekend you’re donning a zany costume for a fast ride down an icy toboggan chute; the next you’re exploring global issues with some of the country’s leading thinkers. You get the idea: our calendar is bursting with events of all kinds throughout the year.
