Christmas Prelude

A magical wonderland experience…

First week of December – an ideal time to visit Kennebunkport, Maine

The Kennebunkport Business Association’s Christmas Prelude is back! For every year of the Prelude’s existence, business people have worked with the community to recreate the spirit and joy of the Christmas season.

The first Prelude included a tree lighting ceremony, a River Tree Arts concert, a chowder luncheon, candlelight caroling and Santa’s arrival by lobster boat. There are now three tree-lighting ceremonies – Dock Square in Kennebunkport, Lower Village of Kennebunk and the lobster trap tree in Cape Porpoise; about a dozen Art and Craft Fairs; approximately 12 venues serving either breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner; programs sponsored by the Historical Society; and 12 programs of music celebrating the season. And Santa still arrives by lobster boat escorted by two very special “lobster elves”.

Exact schedule of events for 2015 will be posted soon on Christmas Prelude in Kennebunkport Maine.
