Bar Harbor Music Festival

Bar Harbor, ME 04609



Variety is the key to the Bar Harbor Music Festival, and on more than just the musical front. Concertgoers can take in everything from string orchestra concerts and nights of jazz or brass to New Composers concerts and even Opera!  Our venues are as varied as the musical menu: the Bar Harbor Congregational Church, known for its excellent acoustics; "Balance Rock Inn 1903" , the magnificent turn-of-the-century shorefront mansion built for Scottish railroad tycoon Alexander Maitland and his family; Blackwoods Campground Amphitheatre in spectacular Acadia National Park, the amazing art-deco Criterion Theater (a jewel in the heart of downtown) and the elegant Bar Harbor Regency Holiday Inn Walsh House. To quote music critic, Harty Preble Archer, "A trip to the Bar Harbor Music Festival is never disappointing."
