Crafters, artisans, consultants, organizations, and the like are invited to take part in the Arts and Craft Fair as part of the 41st Annual International Homecoming Festival. This Arts and Craft Fair event will be held along Calais’ beautiful Riverfront Walkway on Sunday, August 10th.

In addition to this event, many others will take place in the same vicinity on this final day of the festival. Several inflatable slides and bounce houses will line the waterfront for children, along with free pony rides and a free petting place. Kids will also enjoy taking part in many other no cost events, including a doll carriage and bike parade, a characters in costume march, a candy scramble, and a story time with Maine author Liza Gardner Walsh.

Adults will not only enjoy the great view of St. Stephen, New Brunswick and the fun atmosphere, but will also enjoy the sounds of live music from Pete and Noelle Gould, one of the area’s finest duos. Folks are encouraged to bring a chair to enjoy this free entertainment. The festival will end with the spectacular Duty Free Americas, Hardwicke’s Fireworks Display at the riverfront over the St. Croix River.
