September in Ogunquit – Full of Fall Festivals & Events

Ogunquit is a great year round destination  – there’s so much more than the beach. At the Meadowmere, we get very excited at our hotel to celebrate Fall. Autumn has such beautiful colors in New England and Southern Maine is full of reasons to enjoy the cool nights and warm days.

Here are favorites at our hotel for spending September in Maine – our top things to do in Ogunquit as Fall begins:

  1. Labor Day Fireworks! September starts with a bang! Get up to Ogunquit early for the holiday and enjoy the fireworks and reggae band. On Saturday – a special sidewalk sale means you can get a litle something for you this back to school season.
  2. Almost Labor Day Auction at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art. With delicious food, wine, silent auction, and a live art auction this is some Labor Day grown up fun. 

  3. Capriccio Keyboard Concert. Ogunquit Performing Arts has an outstanding series of concerts and event – this one features a great hour of organ and piano music featuring six pianists and organists taking place at the Ogunquit Baptist Church. 

  4. Take a Walking Tour of Ogunquit to learn about the history of our village or a Gallery Talk at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art by guest curators. Our little seaside Maine village has a lot to offer – first settled in 1620, we’ve got lots of stories to share!

  5. Sometimes the sound of singing is all you need. See a special a cappella performance by The York Singers, conducted by Dr. William Whieting. They’ll be presenting a program of English Folk and Part-Songs.

  6. The Annual Kite Festival is a do not miss. With kite kits for kids and professional flyers demonstrating flying techniques, you’ll spend much of the day at Ogunquit Beach enjoying the spectacular sights of over 300 kites filled the sky. The Kite Festival is sponsored by Ogunquit Rotary Club. Another treat – the Ogunquit Art Association often hosts one of their legendary gala receptions to celebrate the Fall Exhibitions and meet the artists. A fabulous day in Ogunquit!

  7. The Lighthouse – its romantic, its rugged, its comforting. Something about those beacons shining thru the mist, the rain, the night. We love ’em here in Maine. So we’ve got a whole day dedicated to Lighthouses – come to Maine and celebrate Maine’s Lighthouse Day with specials tours, talks and even special open houses at our most famous lighthouses. 

  8. The Annual Antique & Art Sale & Show is a treasure hunt like no other. In its 35th, this event is a must for treasure seekers and helps support the Ogunquit Heritage Museum. For those who appreciate antiques and some of the finer things in life – But really for anyone who likes to discover a find! – you’ll see period pieces, lovely jewelry, art, furniture and linens (the linen guy is famous in these parts!).

  9. PunkinFiddle Means Family Fun! This annual treat is a Laudholm Farm’s fall festival celebrating the harvest, crafts, art and nature. With live music, kids activities, nature walk set at Laudholm Farm’s beautiful yellow farmhouse and barns, mark September 26th on your calendar and head to our Ogunquit hotel and Wells to enjoy with kids of any age.
