  • : Children - Dec 09 thru Dec 17 - Boothbay - North Pole Express - Boothbay Railway Village - Upcoming Knox County Maine Events
    On Saturdays and Sundays, December 9, 10, 16, and 17, the Boothbay Railway Village will be running the "North Pole Express!" Departure times and other event details will be announced later this year. Purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended to avoid disappointment or long waits. Start your trip inside historic 1912 Freeport Station (the main train station at the Museum) by writing your letter to Santa by warmth of the wood stove. Train conductors will call "All Aboard" and everyone, young and old, will board the train to the North Pole. Settle into a comfortable seat in the steam-heated passenger car as you enjoy the winter wonderland of forest frosted with white snow (weather permitting, of course.) If you would like, upgrade your ticket to First Class and enjoy the Victorian splendor of the newly restored Franklin and Megantic Coach No. 2. The coach was originally built in 1903 and it embodies the typical travel of the era with its plush walkover seats and mahogany interior. The train will carry you through the Village and arrive at the North Pole (Thorndike Station) where a special guest wearing a red suit with a jolly belly will jump aboard to greet you! Yes, Santa himself will attend! After meeting the "big guy" in person the train will whisk you back to the station where you will be invited to join us in the 1847 Boothbay Town Hall for more festivities. Inside guests will be treated to a special story book reading while hot chocolate and homemade cookies are served. Everyone will enjoy the G-scale model of the Museum's own locomotive and a holiday themed layout under the Village's Christmas tree. Children will also be invited to make a vintage-inspired holiday ornament to take home. Tickets are available in advance or at the door. Online sales typically start in October. Event is on the weekends of Dec. 9 and 10 and Dec. 16 and 17.

    The Boothbay Railway Village invites families to celebrate the bounty of autumn at an old-fashioned, family-friendly festival, Family Harvest Days. Perfect for families who want an alternative to the big fairs and commercial midways, there will be a working blacksmith and other traditional artists, barrel train rides, farm animals and much more. Watch a butter churning demonstration and then taste the fresh butter on New England brown bread baked according to a 100 year old recipe. See how Dutch ovens were used for baking and cooking over open fires and in hearths. There will also be complimentary cider and homemade cookies. Visitors can say hello to the Museum's pair of resident goats as well as some special guests. Barnyard animals will be visiting from a variety of regional farms. You'll be able to meet the farmers and learn about how they take care of the animals today as well as what it would have been like to keep animals for families living in Maine villages historically. Some farms will have products for sale. Watch for our lineup of artisans (like quilters and blacksmiths) to be announced closer to the event date. All artisans will also have work for sale. Guests are invited to take a hayride to a pumpkin patch where for a small additional fee you can take home your own pumpkin. A decorating station will also be provided. Family Harvest Days is just one stop along Maine's Pumpkin Trail, a partnership celebrating history, art and giant fruit along 50 miles of what we think is Maine's most beautiful coastline! Follow Maine's Pumpkin Trail on Facebook to discover great ways to celebrate fall with friends and family of all ages.

Rides on the narrow gauge steam train and the opportunity for guests to explore exhibits detailing Maine's railroad heritage, interpreting village life, and displaying more than 60 antique automobiles set this event apart. Artisan demonstrations, live music and a children's corner adds to the fun of this family tradition.

  • : Other - Aug 01 thru Aug 31 - Boothbay - Maine Coast Stone Symposium - Boothbay Railway Village - Upcoming Knox County Maine Events
    From granite for some of the country's most significant public buildings to slate for roof tiles, commercial mining and stone working has thrived in Maine since around 1800. The sector's evolution affected transportation by both sea and rail, while technological advances changed the industry in significant ways. Today, Maine stone artists and artisans still use many traditional techniques to create everything from garden benches to world-renowned public architecture. Join us in August 2017 for a month-long celebration of the history, art and culture of Maine's stone industry. Look for educational programs, a history exhibit, and a 10-day sculpture symposium investigating the ties between technology, industry and the creative world. Special events include an opening reception on Thursday, Aug. 10; a Stone Symposium on Friday, Aug. 11 through Sunday, Aug. 20 (with artists working); and a closing celebration with artists on Thursday, Aug. 24.
