Bucksport's Wednesday on Main Home


We concluded the 2019 Wednesday On Main season last week the same way we began...with a crowd

of happy people enjoying fun, music and fellowship in a great downtown Bucksport space.

It's been a wonderful Summer, showcasing exceptionally talented players and singers. Puppeteers filled

The Alamo with joyous children's laughter. We went gaga over authentic Flamenco dance and the

gospel according to Aretha. And we experienced a moving, powerful tribute to our papermaking

community. None of this could have been brought to Bucksport without the generous financial support

of sponsors and grant funders, and donations from those attending our events. And some folks were

regretfully turned away at the door because of sold out performances...to those, I offer my sincerest

apologies and my thanks for your good and gracious natures!

Year round and summer visitors from in and out of the Town, County and State joined us, some every

week, and we are so grateful for your enthusiasm and support.

This was our fifth year of bringing live events to Bucksport's Main Street every Wednesday during the

summer, and it would not be possible without the efforts of our faithful volunteers who hung banners,

moved chairs and ladders, distributed a zillion posters and submitted info to countless community

calendars, counted heads, made delicious shortbread, helped with grant writing, managed our website,

took photos...and so much more. And a big thank you to the local merchants and businesses who have

been behind us every step of the way, every year. Our attendance was up, the programs were great and

we are beginning to plan our strategy for next year.

So, thank you one and all. This amazing community has been so strong and positive since 2014, when

everything changed, and we are all so proud to be part of Bucksport.

Looking forward.
