Event Description

Downtown Bucksport, ME
Saturday, October 21st, 2017

Full schedule of events can be found here.

Join us this October 21st for the ninth annual spook-tacular Ghostport festival in downtown Bucksport. Timed to coincide with Fright at the Fort just across the bay, this Halloween-themed event offers something for all ages, from the Lil' Goblins Parade down Main Street to Jonathan Buck’s Race to the Grave.

Whether it’s the spooky or the sweet that you seek, Ghostport is the place for fall fun. Show off your creative skills in the carved pumpkin contest or skip the carving altogether and launch your pumpkin into the Penobscot using our trebuchet. After the sun sets, scare yourself silly at Fort Knox and then take our shuttle back to the waterfront to enjoy music, food and fireworks. Cap it all off with a late night horror film on the big screen!  A Wickedly Fun Filled day!

 This year’s Ghostport events feature:

Pumpkins being catapulted into the river (keep your fingers crossed we might have a pumpkin cannon)
A little goblins parade down Main Street
Food and craft vendors on the waterfront
Trunk or treating
Chili Cook-Off
Giant carved pumpkins
Carved pumpkin contest
Activities for kids of all ages
A fireworks display
The Werewolf Howl Dance
and competitors racing coffins in “Jonathan Buck’s race to the grave event”.
This year brings us all that and maybe more!

We believe the Greater Bucksport area is an ideal setting for Halloween activities with our rich spooky History surrounding the Jonathan Buck tombstone, the macabre murder of Sarah Ware and countless local ghost stories.
