Festival Brochure

Visit Freeport’s Sparkle Celebration is one of Maine’s most popular holiday celebrations. In addition to our signature events, Freeport businesses roll out the red carpet and host their own seasonal festivities including, of course, L.L.Bean’s Northern Lights. This year looks a little different but there are more dazzling lights than ever before and plenty of ways to celebrate responsibly while wearing a mask and social-distancing.
