Bucksport's Wednesday on Main Home

April 2022

Hello everyone!

After a very long two years, Wednesday On Main returns with just a few events for the Summer of ’22.

Not having weekly events in Bucksport these last two summers has been a big miss for everyone. Bucksport and our neighbors and guests were fired up, energized and optimistic at the end of the Summer of 2019, and then, like the rest of the country and the world, we soon were bombarded with shocking news of the COVID-19 pandemic - every day – every hour – every minute. It’s been a horrible time that has had the silver lining of showing us what we’re made of. We humans rock and so does Science.

Join us for our limited run this Summer – we kick off as usual with the ridiculously adorable and well-loved Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers on June 8th at The Alamo – free to all at 5:30 p.m. For kids ages 4 to 94.

We’re trying to bring a fabulous African-Cuban-French-outrageously good jazz & more group from California for July 6, watch this space.

August 3rd will find us all on Main Street about 5:30 pm for our annual Food on Main event. We’ll be enjoying fabulous burgers and more prepared by Bucksport’s own Fire & Police Personnel. They set it up, cook a ton of food, take it all down, and use the proceeds of sales to foster community relations and activities. All with the biggest smiles and good humor you’ve ever seen. They’ll be helped along by the fabulous baking crews from our amazing Bucksport Garden Club (best garden club in the state, say all), who will sell delicious pies, cookies, cakes, who knows what, all baked with love and care – proceeds go toward civic beautification and educational programs. There could be music. Bring your wallets and your appetites, these are fundraising events for these organizations.

It's a lineup you won’t want to miss. In the off weeks, come to Town and enjoy lots of new Main Street shopping, great food downtown and just out of town, a lot of ice cream, beautiful wines, lobsters and pizza and you name it, then take a stroll along our beautiful waterfront walkway. We’re the envy of all the Towns.

Thank you for your good thoughts, support and attendance. We can’t do a thing without you and the great support of The Town of Bucksport, our sponsors and friends.

See you downtown.
