Bar Harbor Music Festival

Bar Harbor Music Festival

Sunday, Jul 26, 2020 at 8:00pm


Now celebrating its 54th Season, we have advanced the careers of over 2,200 aspiring instrumentalists, singers, and composers. Our annual Festival, coupled with our “Arts and Tourism” initiatives, has provided a vital cultural and economic service for the community and the nation. We estimate the revenue derived from the Festival every summer for accommodations, restaurants, shops, local attractions, and travel to be 1 million dollars.

The Festival’s outreach programs, such as the admission-free outdoor concerts in Acadia National Park, have won new audiences for classical music. Its annual Summer Festival and Touring Program have engaged over one million, as music lovers gravitate to this musical gem in the breathtaking setting of Bar Harbor, Maine.
