25th Annual Capriccio Festival of the Arts

Capriccio: "a musical composition in free form, usually lively in tempo and brilliant in style." The word also represents Ogunquit's town-wide Festival of the Arts, this year celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Coordinated by Ogunquit Performing Arts, an expanded Festival is planned, occurring September 7th through September 20th, throughout Ogunquit. Participants will include the major arts organizations in town, churches, art galleries, service organizations and local businesses. Events will include concerts, new exhibits and receptions, historical look-backs, special tours of theatres and art galleries, and the art of kite-flying.

A calendar of all the events and detailed information will appear soon on this website.
