Christmas by the Sea Ogunquit
December 12-14 "Ogunquit" in Native American means "Beautiful Place by the Sea", and at no time is that more true than during Christmas by the Sea. This annual seaside celebration brings the town of Ogunquit to life and to light with plenty of holiday cheer. The charming inns and stores are decorated in holiday spirit, and events galore await holiday visitors.
Friday night kicks off with Carolers and a Bell Choir Concert plus a cozy bonfire for revelers. Saturday's festivities include Hayrides, arts and craft fairs for eager holiday shoppers and Santa arriving at Perkins Cove. Shops, boutiques and art galleries offer shoppers a warm reception and a chance to accomplish their holiday gift list. The Chowderfest and Chocolatefest allow local chefs to flaunt their delicious skills, while shoppers enjoy tasty treats. An afternoon Christmas Parade down Main Street is a must. The evening Tree Lighting, caroling, candlelight walk and live Manger are all magical holiday events that capture the true meaning of Christmas.
Sunday, more hayrides and shopping awaits as part of Ogunquit's Christmas by the Sea. Free gift wrapping is available to address any holiday stress. The Southern Maine Christmas parade in Wells at 2pm is the perfect culmination to your Christmas by the Sea weekend as it passes right by our resort.
