C WHAT’S ON COMMUNITY CALENDAR
Common Street Arts is pleased to present its 5th annual Holiday Bazaar! Prior to the snowy winter holidays, the gallery will be transformed into a marketplace filled with handmade items created by Maine artists and craftspeople through this juried exhibition. This is a great time to find those unique holiday gifts which will be available at Common Street Arts!
Holiday Bazaar dates are November 15-December 23, 2017. (Please note that we will be closed November 23 & 24).
Gallery Hours will be Tuesday – Friday 10:00am- 6:00pm. Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm.
Members $10 advance, all others $20 advance. Tonight is the night to be on hand to get an early glimpse of the season’s gingerbread house creations, while enjoying delicious hors d’oeuvres and drinks, amidst the stunningly decorated Opera House. Bid on a few silent auction items that you can’t live without. Be there when the 2017 Gingerbread Spectacular Awards are announced. Listen to the music, dance if you wish. Dress up, dress down. Anything goes at this amazing holiday party for everyone. All proceeds benefit the Opera House. There is no more spectacular party setting in Maine this season, don’t miss it! Generously sponsored by The First National Bank.
Come check out this year’s gingerbread creations at this Opera House tradition. This annual display of gingerbread houses large and small, with a few cabins, castles, lighthouses, and mythical structures thrown in for good measure shows off the heart of the community. Professional bakers and grade school builders all compete in this hilarious annual event with prizes awarded for Most Ingredients Used, Best Holiday Spirit, Most Obsessive Compulsive, Best Landscaping and, of course, Most Spectacular among other awards. The confectionery creations are on display beginning Friday evening at the Dough Ball Preview Party and then throughout the weekend from 10 am – 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday. No admission fee. Donations welcome. Dozens of wildly creative edible construction projects, music & entertainment, cocoa, a great bake sale, and the magical gingerbread structures make this the most fun weekend of the year, all set within the gorgeously decorated Opera House. Words do not do it justice, it must be seen to be believed. Mark your calendars and bring your family and friends to this special holiday tradition.

This weekend of holiday magic is generously sponsored by The First National Bank and we are particularly thankful to the staff of the Boothbay Harbor branch.
