Flaxapalooza 2020!

Press Release

Flaxapalooza2020 is being organized by the Searsport based Makers Guild of Maine, an organization which exists to “celebrate the wisdom and knowledge that was common property before the digital age and industrial revolution“ says Astrig, who is one of the Guild’s founders . With a long history of successful concerts and makers events behind them,  and with the generous support of both the Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund and the Maine Bicentennial Commission, Astrig expects the event - their most ambitious to date to attract well over 1500 visitors to the area during the Bicentennial. Based at the beautiful Searsport Shores Oceanfront Campground with its studios, concert spaces and organic gardens, Flaxapalooza 2020 will feature several evening and partnership events during the summer, and culminate in 12 days of themed classes, workshops, talks, markets, demonstrations, food and music events that will be the highlights of this year’s Fiber College of Maine. “Hand crafting,” Astrig stresses, “is a social event. People work together, eat together, and make music together. It builds a very special community. Please join us for Flaxapalooza 2020.”
