CulturePass is your window into the artistic and cultural richness of the greater international Passamaquoddy region including Cobscook and Passamaquoddy Bays and the St. Croix River.
The Eastport ArtWalk takes an Autumn Ramble, a 1.2 mile hillside walk updated with new highlights and a link to a tour of the Hillside Cemetery.
Have you ever wanted to learn more about the people in the past who made Eastport what it is today? Their stories come alive as you stroll the peaceful paths through the cemetery.
The shelves at the gallery are ready for pumpkins to be displayed!!
I will start taking any carved pumpkins October 22nd and put the lights in them if anyone would like to drop one off, and they will be lit up every night through November 2nd. This is the 4th annual Community Pumpkin Display and will be the last at this location - so join us in lighting up Water Street this halloween!

Scattered among Maine’s coastal communities, in historical societies, museums, libraries, community radio stations and schools, the voices of Maine’s fishing community members have been recorded for posterity. These voices can illustrate the past and help us plan for the future. With ecological shifts happening today as a result of climate change and other drivers, the local fisheries knowledge contained in Maine’s rich oral history archives is a critical source of information about ecology and coastal communities. But not if the recordings are sitting on shelves collecting dust. This talk will reflect an effort to bring those stories to life. Through audio clips past and present, maps, diagrams, timelines, and photos, the project aims to bring life back to these stories so they can be useful for decision-making, community development and cultural heritage.
