Bar Harbor Music Festival
The 53rd Bar Harbor Music Festival!
Variety is the key to the Bar Harbor Music Festival, and on more than just the musical front. Concertgoers can take in everything from string orchestra concerts and nights of jazz or brass to New Composers concerts and even Opera! Our venues are as varied as the musical menu: the Bar Harbor Congregational Church, known for its excellent acoustics; The Maine Sea Coast Mission, the former Colket family mansion overlooking Frenchman Bay; Blackwoods Campground Amphitheatre in spectacular Acadia National Park; the amazing art-deco Criterion Theater (a jewel in the heart of downtown), and the elegant Bar Harbor Club. To quote music critic, Hetty Preble Archer, “A trip to the Bar Harbor Music Festival is never disappointing.”
