Down East 2013 ©
The double black diamond of White Heat might be closed for the season, but you can find some real diamonds or gemstones of your own to take home at the twentieth annual Bethel Art Fair. A winter haven, Bethel bustles even in the summer, especially during this one-day event, featuring more than fifty local artists and artisans selling their arts and crafts on the Village Common. Don’t miss the Portland Brass Quintet from noon to 2 P.M., and sample the tasty treats from pizza and lobster rolls to desserts provided by local restaurants. Stick around until dusk to watch Independence Day fireworks behind the nearby Bethel Inn. This event is co-sponsored by Down East.
