The village of Wiscasset is making plans for a festive holiday season with Holiday Marketfest, four days of special events, shopping opportunities and treats for the whole family.

From Thursday through Sunday, Dec. 7-10, stores and galleries will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or later, offering gift ideas, music and munchies.

Local merchants will be joined on Friday and

Saturday by pop-up vendors and food trucks in several locations throughout the village. The historic Nichols-Sortwell House, its rooms decorated for Christmas by local floral designers, will open its doors for tours. And the 19th century barn around the corner on Federal Street is guaranteed to beckon children with an ancient fire truck decorated for the event by Wiscasset’s Fire Society.

Children can meet Santa and sing along with carolers. The library will have a kids-only shopping venue. A horse-drawn carriage will carry shoppers from one end of town to the other.

Wiscasset Holiday Marketfest 2017 is a Wiscasset Area Chamber of Commerce event designed to welcome shoppers. Major sponsors are Camden National Bank, Carl M.P. Larrabee Agency, Carriage House Gardens, Greg’s Used Cars, Norm’s Used Cars, Red’s Eats, Sheepscot Bay Physical Therapy, Tim Dunham Realty and Wiscasset Ford, with additional support from Cod Cove Inn.
