The show features "early-bird" jurying (January 10) at the applicant's discretion , enabling artists to plan their summer trip and hotel reservations months in advance; see show website for details.

Held at the peak of Bar Harbor, Maine's, famous summer season, the event caters to summer residents and vacationers from among the nation's economic elite. Highly visible and well promoted, the festival draws art-savvy buyers who value unique, collectible work from top-quality artists nationwide.
