Events 2014

  • July 12 & 13, 2014
    2014 Tour Poster Our tour features four homes, three gardens and two boats to board and view. Programs and workshops will be held throughout the weekend with a focus on heritage, architecture, gardening and shipbuilding.

    Mahone Bay's treasures of scenery, architecture, gardens, shops, restaurants, artisans and community spirit all come together in a town alive with natural beauty and summer pleasures.
    Homeowners open their doors and garden gates, and sea captains give permission to board and view their working vessels at the Mahone Bay Home, Garden and Boat Tour.

    Experience a "day in the bay" with a program that features the beauty of a town known to be as 'pretty as a picture'.
    The Mahone Bay Founders Society and community partners present this annual summer celebration, Treasures of Mahone Bay Festival.


  • AVAILABLE YEAR ROUND
    3 walking tours of Mahone Bay
    Each tour takes approximately 30 Minutes.
    The parking lot across from the three churches on Edgewater Street provides a convenient location from which to start this stroll.

    Remember to look up! Roof-level features are sometimes the most interesting.

    Please respect the privacy of homeowners - but you are invited to visit the Settlers Museum and all the shops on the tour to view the interior of the town's heritage buildings.

    First, take a moment to read the history of Mahone Bay and then ENJOY YOUR WALK AND VIST AGAIN SOON!
