Celebrating Maine’s Craft Heritage
The Village is continually expanding its commitment to bring to life the craft and handiwork of bygone eras in Maine. We are a museum that treasures how people, families, communities, villages and industries have grown over the years. We believe that to understand today and tomorrow, looking back teaches us how to move forward.
Unless challenging weather forces artisans and guests inside, the artisans work in the open-air programs from 10 am to 4 pm. Many artisans offer their products for sale to visitors.
The Village realizes its vision and mission through the continuing support of many Maine foundations, including the Davis Family Foundation and the Belvedere Handcrafts Fund at the Maine Community Foundation.
