This weekend, the Boothbay Railway Village along with the Boothbay Information Center will host a New England craft fair. Imagine the smell of hot mulled cider, fresh Maine clam chowder and add the sound of a steam whistle resonating throughout the crisp fall air.

Come down for some great food, Maine crafts, narrow gauge steam train rides, over 50 classic, vintage and antique cars, along with all other museum exhibits and non-stop musical entertainment.
