Winter is here, but there is still plenty of activities going on in your area. This month, we will show you where to find them!

We’ll start with the Chamber of Commerce. Year-round they are a great source of information. One event that is appealing is their First Friday coffee hour. Visit them for coffee & find out about what they do. See their calendar at:


The Ellsworth American calendar is also a great source of information. Check them out at:


The Grand Theater always has something to offer in the cold and wet weather. Go to their website to find entertainment.


In the winter, Woodlawn Museum is a great place to do some cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. See their site at:


Birdsacre is another local place to do some winter activities. The Sanctuary is open year round from dawn to dusk with a long network of trails. Go to their website for more information.

Even if you like to stay inside during these cold months, plan to venture out during the weekend of February 3-6 for The Great Maine Outdoor Weekend.  There are hundreds of opportunities to get outside and enjoy winter.  Check out their site for events near you:


Beneath John Edwards Market on Main St. in Ellsworth there is a Wine Cellar Art Gallery. It’s a great time of year to check the art show out (modern and contemporary by Maine artists). And keep an eye on their calendar for the next wine tasting event!


Another place that will have a wine tasting this month is at the Cellar. This is the place to check it out:
