Bucksport's Wednesday on Main Home





October 31, 2018


Wednesday On Main’s summer event program soared to new heights this season. We began in our usual way – with loads of laughing children watching the antics of the Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers – and ended by watching a beautiful, slim, young Elvis Presley planning his comeback concert in Las Vegas – the last movie in our Music Documentary Film Series. Honestly, the entertainment this year was just exceptional. There is much talent in our orbit.

All in all, we brought 17 live events to the Main Street of our fair town, Bucksport. From fiery Acadian Fiddling to stunning, authentic Flamenco Dance to a street full of hungry friends and neighbors enjoying burgers, dogs and pie, this Wednesday On Main summer was nothing but fun. Well, there IS a bit of work involved – and to that end, let us thank our stalwart volunteers who, once again, posted endless Press Releases, took fabulous photos, provided delicious shortbread cookies at EVERY event, schlepped chairs, put up tents, posters and banners, and so much more. THANK YOU ONE AND ALL.

And, a huge thank you to our primary season sponsor, Darling’s of Augusta, Bangor & Ellsworth – once again you’ve shown your faith in what we’re about and in our town. And speaking of town, another huge thank you to The Town of Bucksport, who has been there from day one with time, money, administrative help and so much enthusiasm and encouragement. And thank you to event sponsors and individual donors, our partners – our Chamber of Commerce, WERU Community Radio, The Bucksport Garden Club and Bucksport’s Finest Guns & Hoses. And then – there’s YOU – you show up, you donate, you laugh, clap & break into dance, and you bring friends and family – Thank you. It truly takes every one of you to make this thing go.

2019 – SEASON FIVE - is already shaping up – Barcelona returns! Bluegrass! Movies! Storytelling! Puppets! And who knows what else? We’ll let you know as soon as we can.

We’re so proud to be a part of this community as we all take the ride into our bright future. Paula Kee, Chair
