Join Friends of Sears Island as we celebrate the longest day of the year, Thursday, June 21, from 6 p.m. to sundown. This is an event for the whole family. Bring a picnic or enjoy savory tacos and other offerings from the popular YumBus food truck and sweet treats from Wild Cow Creamery. There will be live music and readings that celebrate ancient traditions and modern day ceremonies, poems, and songs to welcome the official start of summer. All are invited to wear flower crowns, to dress as faeries and elves, or otherwise adorn themselves in a way that expresses the enchantment of a magical midsummer’s eve on the Maine coast.

Please bring blankets or lawn chairs for your comfort, as there are no picnic tables. No grills or open fires are permitted on Sears Island. Please leave your pets at home and be prepared to carry out what you carry in. There is one ‘porta-potty’ available at this event, so plan accordingly. Parking will be along the causeway; please park along the guardrail facing south.

In case of bad weather, please check our Facebook page (facebook.com/friendsofsearsisland) to learn if the event is cancelled.

Sears Island is located on Sears Island Road, off Route 1, just east of Searsport village. For more information, visit www.friendsofsearsisland.org, facebook.com/friendsofsearsisland or call 207-975-3878.
