Here’s one festival that has gone to the dogs, literally.
We posted earlier about the fairs and festivals being held in the area this summer and fall, but we left one out: Maine Wienerfest 2017!
This unusual festival celebrating the dachshund breed is now in its 14th year. Held on Belfast’s waterfront (about 30 minutes from Camden) in Steamboat Landing Park, it runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 10. Events include a Grand Parade of dachshunds, costume prizes, races, and other zany events.
There’s a small admission fee for adults; kids and dogs get in free. Even if you don’t have a dachshund or even a dog, this entertaining event has broad appeal for all ages!
