The PineCrest Announced today that a tradition started in the 1750’s has returned to the grounds of the Inn. Several owners of the property now known as the PineCrest Bed and Breakfast Inn, during the last 255 years have each brought something special to the town of Gorham. The original owner, James Gilkey was known for bringing musicians up from Boston to Gorham and hosting performances. Many subsequent owners were musicians, singers and music teachers.
Bringing back the tradition of music on the grounds inspired the innkeepers to host a new music and art festival. The Innkeepers announced today that the Inn will be hosting the this festival July 27th.
The festivities begin with a Taste Walk through the village of Gorham from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM. Several restaurants and cafes will be serving samples of a signature disk or item to the walkers. Each person is asked to vote for their favorite taste of Gorham. The restaurant or cafe winning the most number of votes will receive the GOLDEN SPOON AWARD.
The Music Fest follows the Taste Walk from 1:00 PM to 7 PM and will provide an entire afternoon of great live music outdoors. There will also be a beer and wine garden available as well as the PineCrest club will be providing a great summer grill out.
Later this week, the Inn will announce the line up of musicians who will be performing during the music fest.
Tickets to the entire day are only $5 each and the proceeds from 100% of the ticket sales will be donated to four local community groups, each selected specifically for their continued commitment to the betterment of the Gorham community.
The PineCrest Inn located in the heart of the Village of Gorham is one of the highest rated Bed and Breakfasts in Maine. The PineCrest location makes it the most convenient Bed and Breakfast in southern Maine.
