BELFAST, Maine — Arts in the Park Belfast will continue for its 19th year, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 12 and 13, on the Belfast waterfront. The venue is undeniably beautiful, with the harbor and Penobscot Bay as a backdrop for the 80 or so artists and artisans exhibiting their original work. There will be paintings, metalwork, photos, jewelry, stone work, fiber, pottery and more.

In addition, four local churches will be serving strawberry shortcake to raise funds for the local Interfaith Fuel Fund – to assist those in need with heating costs during cold winter months.
