Fresh Air on Main Street Freeport
July 4 @ 8:00 am - July 5 @ 8:00 pm
Oceanside state parks, riverside trails, meadows in bloom, mountain summits and even desert dunes – we all have a renewed appreciation for serene spaces and tranquil experiences. Explore Freeport and breathe easy in our abundance of open spaces and beautiful natural amenities.
As we look forward to welcoming guests back to Freeport, we want to assure our visitors that we’re working together as a community (Visit Freeport, The Town of Freeport, Freeport Economic Development Corporation, Greater Freeport Chamber of Commerce, Freeport Police Department and L.L.Bean) to provide you and your loved ones with a safe, welcoming experience every time you enter our historic village. We’ve always been known as a favorite destination for fresh air shopping and dining, and this year you’ll find even more outdoor space dedicated to your favorite vacation activities.
For the next two weekends, Main Street in Freeport will be closed from the intersections of Main & Bow Streets, to Main Street & Howard Place for pedestrians to enjoy ample outdoor space to shop and dine. The closures are planned starting 8 a.m. Saturday mornings to 8 p.m. on Sunday evenings. The closure may continue through Labor Day Weekend if visitors and businesses find it successful.
L.L.Bean Bootmobiles and other branded vehicles unique to Freeport will serve as a one-of-a-kind gateway to Main Street. Within the space, peruse outdoor displays, dine al fresco, or simply relax in one of our covered seating areas featuring lawn chairs, tables, potted plants, and sanitation stations. The L.L.Bean Pop Up Shop will be on hand select weekends with popular products – offering an alternative way to shop.
Visitors to Freeport this summer will also be excited to see that several retailers have opened new stores or expanded their footprint downtown. Toad & Co just relocated their Warehouse Outlet from Portland to 9 Bow Street, right next door to their full retail store at 11 Bow Street. The Levi’s Outlet is now open at 46 Main Street. Later this summer, EMS (Eastern Mountain Sports) will be opening a store at 4 Mill Street.
