COVID Conscious Holiday Activities

COVID-19 Conscious Holiday Activities in Maine

The holiday season this year will look a little bit different for everyone this year, but that doesn’t mean your family has to compromise their holiday spirit! While remaining safe and socially distant is of utmost importance, there are plenty of activities to do in Maine this winter. Here’s Maine Foodie Tours’ guide to a safe and fun holiday season. 

Take a Walking History Tour with us!

While our public Foodie Tours have been put on hold, our Walking History Tours are still running! We are currently offering private and public Walking History Tours, and private Food Tours. Our Walking History Tours are a great way to enrich yourself in the stories our cities have to tell. You may also get a chance to see the town’s holiday decorations! Book here now.

Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude

Head over Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude! This two-week holiday celebration is the town’s way of bringing Christmas spirit into its community. Running through the first two weeks of December, community members and visitors can enjoy the town’s merry decorations, an outdoor Christmas Market, and special shopping and dining events. Other traditionally large events such as their tree lighting, caroling, and Santa’s arrival will be virtual. To learn more about Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude, visit their website here.

Boothbay Botanical Gardens Aglow- Drive Through

The ever so popular Boothbay Botanical Gardens Algow is offering a drive-through experience for guests this holiday. Take in the magic of the botanical gardens dressed in colorful lights from the comfort and warmth of your car! 

To ensure the safety of the guests and to adhere to social distancing guidelines, all guests must remain in their car during their drive. For tickets and more information, visit the garden’s website here.

Maker’s Market at the Point

Grab your mask, bundle up, and head down to Thompson’s Point to the Maker’s Market! At the market, you will find an abundance of local craftsmen, local jewelry makers, local artisan dairy goods, and so much more. Finding a gift for your loved one’s will be a piece of cake here! The market also offers food and beverages for sale on site. Entry is free. There are two more events left in the year, so be sure to check it out! To learn more, visit their Facebook page.
