Renewing the rich Celtic history, culture and hospitality found along the coast of Maine

Dear Vendors:

Once again, we invite you to join us on Belfast Common and Steamboat Landing in Belfast on the third weekend in July for the 2018 Maine Celtic Celebration. We anticipate another great event and we look forward to having you join us as a vendor for our twelfth anniversary.

This year, 2018, our official event is on Saturday and Sunday, July 21st and 22nd, however we anticipate opening with a concert on the Belfast Common Main Stage on Friday evening, July 20th. You are welcome to participate and open for business after 4:00 pm on Friday. This is an optional vending opportunity.

The primary vendor opportunity will run therefore on Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 10 AM to dusk and on Sunday, July 22, 2018 from 10 AM to 5 PM, on both the Belfast Common and Steamboat Landing, in Belfast, Maine. As we did last year the vendors may choose to open on Friday evening from about 4 pm until dusk. Once again, changes in the configuration of the parks may affect vendor location.

As before we encourage vendors who generally reflect the Celtic theme of our celebration, however if you think your product will fit, please apply.

If you recommend The Maine Celtic Celebration to a new vendor, you will receive a $50.00 reduction off your total booth fee when that new vendor signs up and pays in full.

If you would like to be considered as a vendor at this year’s Maine Celtic Celebration, please complete the attached application ASAP.

Contact Dawn Caswell, Vendor Coordinator, at or at 207-322-6156, with any questions, comments or concerns about this year’s celebration.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to you joining us for another successful event.
