The 41st Annual International Homecoming Festival will take place August 7th to August 10th.

An impressive Arts & Craft Fair will be held as part of the 41st Annual International Homecoming Festival. This event will be held on the final day of the festival, Sunday, August 10th, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. along the beautiful Calais Riverfront Walkway.

Artisans, crafters, consultants, and more are being sought to show and sell their goods. The cost to take part is only $25 per 10’x10’ space, along with a donated item to the giant Chinese auction. The proceeds from the booth space fee and the auction all go back into the festival to help with general operating costs incurred such as required insurance, brochure printing, and parade bands, among others.

In addition to this Arts & Craft Fair, the International Homecoming Festival will feature food; music; numerous activities for children including inflatables, a petting place, and pony rides; and more, all with the fantastic view of our neighboring town of St. Stephen, New Brunswick across the St. Croix River. The four-day festival concludes with the spectacular Duty Free Americas, Hardwicke’s Fireworks Show!
