Belfast, Maine is very small city on the coast of Maine full of creative collaborators giving their time to build community and boost the economy in our historic downtown. The working waterfront boasts shipbuilding and a "restaurant row" along the Harbor Walk which spans the downtown shore through the shipyard and across the Armistice Footbridge. The Main Street program and other area organizations work to see that there is always something to do year-round for people of all ages and interests - from a thriving arts scene to family fun and great recreation opportunities. The downtown is full of historic charm with the Museum in the Streets and Belfast Historical Society walking tours and with blocks of preserved brick buildings. Belfast is even home to America's oldest shoe store (Colburn Shoe, since 1832) and has a broad array of retailers from the hardware to the food co-op to specialty cheese and wine to clothing consignment, books galore, and thoughtful gifts for all. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and nightlife are all to be enjoyed in this small city on Maine's coast, including acclaimed establishments such as Chase's Daily and Marshall Wharf Brewing Company. Belfast is the shire town and service center for all of Waldo County and is surrounded by small towns and farms which contribute greatly to the community's foodie vibe. Fresh local foods can be found year-round at the Belfast Farmer's Market every Friday and many area eateries feature farm to table fare. For music, for art, for community, for great food and drink, for preserved history and local traditions - experience Belfast any time of year. From the Maine Celtic Celebration and Summer Nights outdoor concerts to the Holiday Homecoming dance parties and New Years By The Bay festival there is always a great reason to be in Belfast.
