Memorial Day, Camden, Maine. Small town-big heart!
40 Paper, one of Camden’s trendiest restaurants, has come up with yet another great idea. Partnering with Dandelion Spring Organic farm, they are serving up a five course meal, – organic spring vegetables, heirloom pork and free-range eggs, from the farm, combined with spring lamb and grass-fed dairy from neighboring Straw Farm. To be served at the farm’s newly built post and beam barn! How unique and exciting! Tickets are limited. Event is 02June. Contact 40 paper to reserve your special table. Local, Maine, organic – the best!

Camden’s own Duck Derby to take place Sat 26May, for the first time in 19 years! 2500 bright yellow numbered ducks will race down Megunticook river with a dash over the falls into Camden harbor! Fundraiser, with prizes. It’s going to be just ducky! Starts 10.30am, Mechanic street.
A new restaurant has just opened down at the Harbor – called Graffam Bros Harborside restaurant. Haven’t a chance to try it myself, but some of our guests have been in already and given it a definite thumbs up! Lots of lovely seafood to be found here, of course!
